Jenny LeComte is a freelance journalist currently based in Port Augusta, South Australia — Jewel of the North and Gateway to the Outback.
She began her career as a reporter covering police rounds, court proceedings and local council shenanigans for Rural Press Newspapers in the NSW towns of Cooma and Batemans Bay.
She later worked as a feature writer for the mass-market women's magazine That's Life in Sydney and as a content editor for an independent news and current affairs website called Public Debate.
In 2004, Jenny crossed to the "dark side" and worked as a government spin doctor for the Australian Taxation Office and the Department of Human Services. She also worked in the recruitment industry for a spell before marrying a South Australian man affectionately known as Mon Cheri and making a "sand change".
Today, Jenny does a little bit of this and a little bit of that to bring in enough income to concentrate on her writing. She is extremely grateful to the team at Independent Australia for giving her a platform.
