Jennifer Graham was born and raised during the apartheid era of South Africa. She left her homeland in 1975, at age nineteen, for England, because it was illegal for her and her then boyfriend, who is also South African, to have a romantic relationship merely because of pigmentation - she was brown and he was white.
Jennifer studied elementary education at McGill University in Montreal and earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Communication/print journalism from the University of Mobile, in 2001. Jennifer has numerous published magazine and newspaper articles. Her memoir, An Immoral Proposal, published in 2013, is her first book.
Jennifer is a member of the Saskatchewan Writers' Guild. She is also an AWA (Amherst Writers and Artists) affiliate with whom she trained as a facilitator in the AWA method.
An Immoral Proposal is available through Amazon and Kindle.
