Since the early 1990s, Jessil Abner has worked extensively with children of ages three through twelve as a summer camp counsellor, mentor, school governor, and teacher in America, Nigeria and England. Educated in BA (Hons) English, amongst other qualifications, her first novel Kingsview Kids Adventures: Internet Friend & Adventures in Africa is rich in cultural diversity. Abner’s goal is to provide children with good, clean fun and inspire them to enjoy learning every day.
