A Londoner with Irish heritage, Jennie Ensor writes dark, emotionally-charged psychological suspense and thrillers as well as darkly comic fiction.
She began her writing career as a journalist and loves to tackle controversial issues in her novels: Islamic terrorism, Russian gangsters and war crimes in her debut Blind Side (a thriller set in the year of London’s 2005 terror attacks), domestic abuse and sexual exploitation in her second, The Girl in His Eyes. Her third book is Not Having It All: a wickedly funny, feel-good novel about love, lies and middle-age. Her fourth – due out 7 December 2021 with Hobeck Books – is a crime thriller with a strong psychological element that ventures into the shadowy world of ultra-violent, teen-exploiting gangs and police corruption.
Ms Ensor lives in north London with her husband and an Airedale terrier. She writes short stories and poetry as well as novels, some of which is published in UK and overseas journals; her poem ‘Lost Connection’ placed second in its category in the 2020 Fish Lockdown Prize. In her spare time (?) she reads widely, sings choral music and practices yoga. She is a fiendish walker and regularly cycles the punishing local hills. Evenings she can often be found collapsed in front of a TV crime drama with a bar of chocolate/glass of strong alcohol.
