Hello! Welcome to girl & duck! I’m  Jen Storer. I’m an acclaimed children’s author and this is me in the library. I’m holding the first book in my bestselling junior fiction series, Truly Tan (I’m about to start writing book seven).


I  also write novels and picture books. I’m published by HarperCollins, and Penguin/Random House. My books are loved by thousands of kids (and adults).

This, however, is my teaching, sharing, inspiration site.

 Are you an aspiring  children’s author, illustrator or mixed media artist?   Maybe you’re feeling creatively blocked and need some nurturing. Maybe you just want to moodle along with other big-hearted creatives for a while.

If you said YES to any of the above, girl and duck is here for you.

How so?

Well, when you subscribe to girl & duck you’ll be added to my mailing list. You’ll receive  (via email)  my weekly Creative Writing videos, Q & Q Friday (Questions and Quacks). Yep, every Friday I answer YOUR questions about writing for kids, the publishing industry, art and illustration, living a creative life. All sorts of deliciousness.

Q & Q Friday has become a way of life for hundreds of creatives. Please join us, it’s a happy way to round out your week and there’s always room for more at the duck pond.

See you on the other side and thank you for paddling by! Jen xo
