Jennifer Kavanagh has written eight non-fiction books and a novel, The Emancipation of B, having turned to writing after a career of nearly thirty years in publishing. She became a Quaker in 1996 and is an active member of Westminster Meeting in London.

She has always balanced a deep concern for contemplation and the mystical with action. Faith has prompted practice. She is a practical mystic: thoughtful, wise, perceptive, looking for opportunities to serve and always seeking to find a balance between inward experience and outward witness, and, in her words, ‘plenitude and the void’.
