C. Jennings Penders

C. Jennings Penders has been writing since he was in grammar school. Playing around with five hand written novels in the early 1980s, he always carried a pen and notebook wherever he traveled.

Joining his first writing group in 1989, he began seeing his short stories appear in the small press SF/F magazines in the early 1990s. In 2010 he stopped writing fiction and started a spiritual blog called Wisdom and Life.

Fiction called again in 2016-2017 and he he started writing about Block Island, one of his favorite places. Arrivals and Departures is the culmination of his Block Island fiction. A sequel completed in January 2022 is scheduled to be published in October 2023. C. Jennings is currently working on his fifth book. This one is set in the neighborhood he grew up in.
