Jennifer Stinton, writing under the pseudonym Genevieve, is a professional musician, a flautist, who has spent her life working in London orchestras and as a soloist, touring internationally.
Since childhood, she has always had a passion for writing both prose and poetry. Genevieve won a poetry competition aged sixteen and has continued to write throughout the following years. She has travelled extensively throughout her career as a musician and is able to draw on the many experiences that have affected her during these events and episodes.
A visit to Tereglio, a mountain village in the Apennine region of Tuscany, staying with some musician friends who reside there, inspired the opening of Toscane. The many adventures she experienced in this beautiful region coloured the language and narrative of her debut novel, which she hopes will be the first of many.
