The Ballroom Girls (Penguin 2022) is the first book in a new series of books following Sylvia, Pearl and Joy - three girls dancing through the turbulence of WWII. Through blackouts and air raids, the excitement of the ballroom never dims. But competition is fierce. Can the magic of the ballroom help our girls dance their cares away?

The next book in the series The Ballroom Girls Christmas Dreams published in September 2023 followed by The Ballroom Girls Hit the Big Time which is released in August 2024.

Jenny’s links with Yorkshire, where she lives, date back through many generations, where her mother served in the Land Army during WWII, her aunts were pharmacists and shop-workers, and her grandfather worked as a village blacksmith and pub landlord. Jenny also writes children’s books as Jenny Oldfield, and her books have been adapted as major dramas for the BBC and ITV.

  • “A warmly evocative and satisfying festive read.” Yorkshire Post
