WELCOME

Author Dorothea Jensen

 OK, OK. I know this website looks impossibly complicated. The reason?

 

1) I write many different kinds of books.

 

2) I am including many resources for readers, students, and teachers.

 

I think the tabbed pages at the top (or in the smart phone "grid") are pretty self-explanatory. However, there's much, much more to explore!

 

SITE NAVIGATION GUIDE

 

1. In this middle column (which shows up first on a smartphone) I detail what kinds of books I write, and proclaim the latest news.

 

2. In the left hand column (which shows up below the first one on a smart phone) I have posted buy links, honors, and my social media links.

 

3. In the right-hand column (which shows up below the first two on a smart phone) I have posted all my works arranged by category. Clicking on the title will take you to a page about that work (cover, synopsis, buy links, honors, and reviews). In this column are also links to a page of pictures pertaining to this work, and to a page of videos (including readalouds and speeches) and audios (including music) related to each book. There is also a link to what I call my "Writing Muse." More about tht later.

 

To ask me questions, make comments, order an autographed book or book bundle, schedule a speech, or request an electronic visit with a class that has read one of my books, use the contact page tabbed above, or write me directly at the following e-mail address:

A terrific endorsement from the Midwest Book Review!

Beautifully illustrated throughout, "Liberty-Loving Lafayette: How 'America's Favorite Fighting Frenchman' Helped Win Our Independence" is a unique, informative, and unreservedly recommended addition to middle school, high school, and community library American Revolution history collections for young readers ages 13-18 in general, and Gilbert du Motier, Marquis de Lafayette supplemental curriculum studies reading lists in particular. It should be noted for personal reading lists that "Liberty-Loving Lafayette" is also readily available in a paperback edition (9780990940814, $10.99), and in a digital book format (Kindle, $4.99). —Midwest Book Review

Having written three books about Major General Lafayette, I am naturally interested in the effort to mark where he stopped during his Fabulous Farewell Tour of 1824-5.  I've been having fun participating in dedications of The Lafayette Trail's historical markers. Here I am with Julien Icher, the young Frenchman who founded and runs The Lafayette Trail, at the dedication of the marker in Claremont, New Hampshire.
