Meet the participants of the Llandeilo X-Mas Book Fair (Dec 10th): Jacqueline Jeynes
Dr Jacqueline Jeynes – Writer of the Year 2015.
As a published author of several business books on health and safety and small firms since 2000, Jacqueline published her practical guide on Peg Loom Weaving in 2012 as there was no other full-length guide available at the time.
Her father was a FEPOW – Far East Prisoner of War - so while working with the Midland Association of FEPOWs, she collected their individual stories over 25 years and published her book in 2015 to commemorate the 70th anniversary of VJ Day.
She is currently working on a series of Walking Wales: the Art Lover’s Guide to.., incorporating old paintings from the National Library of Wales alongside up-to-date photographs from her long-distance treks.
Jacqueline is writer/tutor of Aberystwyth University Distance Learning modules on art history, and is a travel writer for Silver Travel Advisor (aimed at 50+ age group). She regularly presents workshops and talks on writing non-fiction.
Pen Coed Publishing was established in Ceredigion in 2016 by established author Dr Jacqueline Jeynes. “We have a growing list of non-fiction publications from the only full-length practical guide on Peg Loom Weaving; the stories from WWII prisoners of war held in Japan and the Far East and families that waited for them; to a series of Art Lover’s Guides to Walking in Wales.” There are several other publications due in the coming year so this is an exciting time for the new business.
