Jen Compton

I am an inspirational poet, writer and speaker.  I take everyday situations that people can relate to and, with rhyming verse, turn them from something mundane into something magic.  The inspirations I write speak to the heart.  They create a positive, conscious shift in people and allow them to better connect with themselves and others.

NEW!  Life’s a Mango is available as an e-book on Amazon Kindle and also as an audio book on Audible:  To purchase, click on the links below:

I’ve had Life’s A Mango by the bedside and have been flicking through it regularly. Your verses are packed with soul and have a comfy flow. I think they suit young and old, women and men alike. There are some real pearls of wisdom from within. I think your words can have a real impact.

I like the poem Your Role, especially the part about being bold.  If you don’t dare to be bold, you won’t get anywhere.  You can get fired for being bold.

Nicolas Anderson from Sweden

I’m a practical guy so I like the poem called Pay it Forward.

I intend to do that one day soon.
