Editorial Reviews


"Just read FLUENCY by Jennifer Foehner Wells and loved it. Wonderful space opera. Looking forward to the next book." (Nalini Singh, NYT & USA Today bestselling author)

"Okay, I am loving, loving, loving "Fluency" by @Jenthulhu. This sci-fi novel is flat out AMAZING. READ IT." (
Brianna Wu, independent video game developer and cofounder of Giant Spacekat)

"Jennifer Foehner Wells' highly recommended Fluency is a phenomenal story of first contact!" (Jason Weisberger, publisher of

"Author Jennifer Wells' writing genius comes from her vast knowledge of the highly technical subject matter and her ability to put the reader in the middle of it without losing him/her in technical jargon while creating characters that seem completely natural and believable." (Jean Fisher for Independent Publisher News)
"FLUENCY is a great read for sci-fi fans and general readers alike. A smart concept, natural dialog and great character development make this a page-turner." (IndieReader

"Reading Fluency is like discovering a new band in some tiny bar and knowing they are going to be huge. Fluency beautifully straddles that perilous line of giving the reader just enough technical information to be very believable, but not enough to bog anyone down." (Travis Mohrman, author of Down The Path)

"With her first novel, Jennifer Wells adds a fresh voice to the sci-fi genre and distinguishes herself as an author to watch." (Theresa Kay, author of Broken Skies)

"From out of the darkness like a shooting star comes 'Fluency,' a tremendous debut novel by Jennifer Foehner Wells. This is an author who is certain to blaze a bold trail." (Patrice Fitzgerald, bestselling author of Karma of the Silo)

About the Author

It became a KDP Select All-Star in August of 2014, as the 3rd most frequently downloaded book in Kindle Unlimited that month. Fluency has been featured on and won the Gold in the Fantasy/Science Fiction category of the 2015 eLit awards.

Jen lives an alternately chaotic and fairly bucolic existence in Indiana with two boisterous little boys, a supportive husband, a mildly unhinged Labrador retriever, and three chubby rambunctious cats as housemates.

Having studied biology, Jen's possessed with a keen interest in science and technology. She's 100% geek and proud of it. You can find her on Twitter, extolling science and scifi fandoms, as @Jenthulhu. To find out more about Jen, visit:

Full content visible, double tap to read brief content.

Jennifer Foehner Wells' debut novel, Fluency, rocketed up the Amazon charts in 2014 and was a frequent KDP Select All-Star. Her sequel, Remanence, was a finalist in the 2016 Goodreads Choice Awards.

Jen is a serial hobbyist (Handy to have around in any upcoming zombie apocalypse). She cooks, bakes, knits by hand, dyes fiber, spins yarn with a spinning wheel, paints with watercolor, and cares for aquaria and houseplants. In the past she has also made beer and wine, quilts and hand-hooked rugs, socks with antique sock machines, soap, gardens, paper, and bound books. She also games. And reads science fiction and fantasy almost exclusively.

Jen currently lives in Pennsylvania with the geekiest literature professor on the planet, two video-game crazed teenaged boys, a couple of unhinged cats, a very barky Great Pyrenees, and a Pekingese/Chihuahua mix that will steal your heart, if you let him.
