***MEET JEN MCCONNEL, AUTHOR OF WHAT HAPPENS IN LONDON***
Jen McConnel is an award winning author. She writes Young Adult and New Adult fiction, nonfiction, and poetry. When she isn’t writing, she can be found on her yoga mat, teaching, or wandering off on another adventure. She grew up in mid-Michigan, attending Western Michigan University, and now lives with her family in North Carolina. She holds a MS in Library Science from Clarion University of Pennsylvania, and she is currently working on her MFA in Children’s Literature at Hollins University.
Once upon a time, she was a middle school teacher, a librarian, and a bookseller, but those are stories for another time.
The guard led us to a patch of bright green grass
dominated by a round glass sculpture.We
paused there, and she cleared her throat.“This is the spot of execution for Nan Boleyn, Katherine Howard, and
others you’ve no doubt heard of in your history books.This monument was built to honor their
memories.Take a moment here if you
like; we’ll meet at that chapel over there.”
I studied the glass sculpture.It listed the names of the people who had
been executed on this spot, and there was a poem written around the side.“Here jeweled names were broken,” I read
aloud, my voice catching.“How
sad.”I knew a little bit about history,
and I’d always been horrified by the king who killed his wives. I bet he and my dad would get along
great—words can be as sharp as an ax. With a shiver, I reached for Carson’s
proud moment of our history, that’s for sure.”
We stood there in silence for a moment, and then
he squeezed my hand.I squeezed back,
holding onto his warmth and strength.He
pulled me toward the chapel where the rest of the group was waiting, but I
looked back at the monument as we walked.
