Born in the 80’s and from the North East of England, Jennifer is a young, married mum with three children.
From an early age Jennifer has had a passion for writing and has been gathering ideas and plot lines from her teenage years. A passionate advocate for women in abusive relationships, she has amalgamated and fictionalised other survivors experiences alongside her own to write her first novel Isolation Junction, detailing the journey of a young woman from the despair of an emotionally abusive and unhappy marriage to develop the confidence to challenge and change her life and to love again. Jennifer hope’s that in reading her book, she will raise awareness of this often hidden and unseen behaviour and empower women in abusive relationships to seek help for themselves and find the confidence to change their lives.

Isolation Junction (2016)
Rose is the mother of two young children, and finds herself living a robotic life with an abusive and controlling husband. While she struggles to maintain a calm front for the sake of her children, inside Rose is dying and trapped in ‘Isolation Junction’.
She runs an online business from home, because Darren won’t let her work outside the house. Through this, she meets other mums and finds courage to attend networking events, while Darren is at work, to promote her business.
It’s at one of these events that Rose meets Tim, a sympathetic, dark-haired stranger who unwittingly becomes an important part of her survival.
After years of emotional abuse, of doubting her future and losing all self-confidence, Rose takes a stand. Finding herself distraught, alone and helpless, Rose wonders how she’ll ever escape with her sanity and her children. With 100 reasons to leave and 1,000 reasons she can’t, will she be able to do it?
Will Tim help her? Will Rose find peace and the happiness she deserves? Can Rose break free from this spiralling life she so desperately wants to change?
Pitch to Publishers & Festival Organisers:
Amazon best selling author, Jennifer Gilmour, has used her debut novel to raise awareness of abusive relationships and coercive control. Based on her own experience combined with that of others, Jennifer has used the story of 'Rose' to highlight the insidious behaviour which undermines confidence and leads to controlling relationships - behaviours which are not natural, healthy or inevitable.
Jennifer also blogs on Huffington Post and has spoken at a number of events across the Northern region.
Those who have read her novel and/or heard her speak have commented that they have learnt something new about this kind of unacceptable behaviour. Some have felt able to share what has happened to them and have felt able to contribute to a network of self help.
Whatever the outcome Jennifer is a passionate advocate for (particularly) women in abusive relationships. She is currently working on her second novel, “Clipped Wings". Which aims to share the experiences of others with the aim of making people feel less alone.
