Author Biography

Jaime Hardgrove

Jaime Hardgrove was born and raised in Fond du Lac, Wisconsin, making frequent trips to Northern Wisconsin with her family to visit her Grandma and Pop at their cabin in Marinette County. Jaime and her siblings frequently reminisce about the fun times they’ve had at the cabin over the years and that’s what sparked the idea for her first book, JJ Goes to the Northwoods. The book is a fictional story inspired by her family’s many trips to the cabin.

As well as spending time up north at the cabin, Jaime’s favorite things include reading, running (especially through the woods), cuddling with her cats Jinx and Kali, and traveling whenever she gets the chance. She also loves her work as a reading teacher in a public elementary school in Wisconsin.
