Jen Conway: Germfighters,
A Battle Within
Jen Conway, an author of a recently published
children’s book, GERMFIGHTERS, A BATTLE WITHIN, grew up in
Chichester. She graduated from Chichester Central School in
1992; attended Bishop Brady High School; and graduated from Roger
Williams University in Bristol, RI. She is an Architect by
profession and had worked for an architectural firm in Manhattan for
over 11 years, while she lived in New York City.
Jen now resides
in Southern California with her husband and her children. She
is presently a stay-at-home mom to her two young, imaginative boys.
Her boys love superheroes, exploring and having adventures.
They spend much of their time exploring the mountains, trails, and
parks near their California home.
The idea of writing the book
derived as result of trying to find a way of teaching her sons the
importance of cleaning and taking care of scratches and scrapes.
When her oldest son was about 3 years old, he got a bad scrape on
his knee. He refused to clean it, so she made up a fantastical
world where germs were the “bad guys” and superheroes were the “good
guys.” The tiny superheroes lived inside the first-aid spray.
It was up to her son to spray them on the germy “bad guys,” and
become a “Germ Fighter!” Every time he got a cut, he wanted to
hear about the first-aid superheroes. Soon they began to make
clay characters as a way to imagine their story. While the
boys attended preschool, her husband took photos of the clay
characters and then she compiled it into a children’s book of a
super-hero, germs, and first-aid spray. Publishing the book
became a way to share the story with other parents and children.
The children’s book, GERM FIGHTERS, A BATTLE WITHIN, is now
available through Amazon. It is also available at the
Chichester Town Library. As pictured, the book was read by the
Librarian, Lisa Prizio, during the May 18th Preschool Story and
Craft Hour at the Chichester Town Library.
Jen recently donated
a copy of the book to Chichester Central School, where it is to be
read to the kindergarten students by the Librarian, Kate Dockham.
Jen felt it was important for her to share the book with the school,
since that was where she learned to read and was encouraged in
writing stories. Jen recalled participating in the Young
Authors Contest at the school, attending the awards ceremony, and
having a photo of the ceremony published in The Suncook Valley Sun.
