Jeni Bea Hopkins has long had a passion for writing, particularly passing on stories and memories. Her ability to immerse readers in both quirky and familiar details prompted her to pursue writing and preserve such experiences. She has published numerous articles on various subjects and has published two books: Growing Up War Eagle: The Story of Billy and Lucy Sharp and Raising Razorbacks: A Collection of Burnett Stories.

Hopkins is a teacher, counselor, coach, sports broadcaster, author, sister, aunt, daughter, stepdaughter, stepsibling, friend and wife, but her favorite role has always been as a mother. She has loved, and continues to love, reading and telling stories to her two children Hailey Jo and Hayden. She hopes you, too, enjoy reading and love the adventures of Peter the Squirrel.
