About Jenny Read Stout

Jenny Read Stout grew up in San Diego, California. She spent her childhood drawing pictures, reading books and running barefoot through the neighborhood. In the first grade she got in trouble for coloring a dinosaur purple, but continued to draw weird stuff anyway.

After traveling the world and trying on many different shoes, Jenny returned to her original passion- art. She has been a member of SCBWI since 2015.

Jenny lives near Portland, Oregon with her best friend, their two kids, a bunch of four-legged critters, and a salsa garden.
