June 2018 - 3 short stories published in compendium "Tales from the Great North Wood",
October 2018 - publication of first collection of poems "Taking my Doggerel for a Walk"
Second volume "Doggerel Delights" published in May 2019 2019.
Third volume in preparation.
Jenny Caro has done it again! Such a broad variety of subjects from the absurd to the serious covered in such a readable manner. 'Doggerel' some of the contents might be but that connotation does this collection and its predecessor a dis-service. Jenny's observations on the everyday are particularly telling - she turns even the mundane experiences of us all into fun. Open any page at random and the reader is bound to find something to chuckle at or to think more deeply about. Something to share and enjoy.
This second volume of poems are as much a joy as they are thought provoking.
Whether you are hoping to ruminate on life's complexity, life and love or have your funny bone ticked, the authors poetry hits the spot once again.
JC has a way with words that reaches all, there is not stuffiness or barriers in her poetry and it has the ability to touch the soul of all ages and backgrounds.

Doggerel Delights does what it says on the tin,(or book)
If you need to be amused a bit, you need to take a look.
It takes too long to read a novel,
But this you can pick up, and then put down,
In your castle or your hovel.
Each page a packed delight,
Morning noon or night.
Some funny some sad.
If you buy this book
You will be glad.

AUTHOR - JENNY CARO
Jenny was born in Sussex but became a veteran Londoner for the rest of her life.
She has cherished all aspects of literature from a very young age - one of those "nose in a book" kids.
She has been a dedicated reader of a wide range of classic and modern fiction and of verse of all kinds- old and new, formal and informal, serious and funny.
She always has been Intrigued by the development over centuries of poetry spoken as well as written and of English language itself. It was as a teenager that she first found satisfaction and comfort in recording her own family and personal experiences in verse.
Her strong sense of humour and quirky take on all aspects of life permeate her poems, odes and doggerel. This reflects her own approaches on how to deal with the pain and pleasures of life. A great believer in creating humour and entertainment to counter the misery caused by "the slings and arrows" of life.
By 2017, her collection of writings had grown considerably and she decided to publish them in two volumes of which "Taking my Doggerel for a Walk" is the first.
The companion volume "Doggerel Delights" has been published in May 2019.
