Jennifer Juniper: A Journey Beyond the Muse
Jenny Boyd has lived quite a life, and in Jennifer Juniper: A Journey Beyond the Muse, she invites us into it.
She was born in Kenya and spent her early years there with her sister Pattie (later to marry George Harrison and then Eric Clapton), Paula, and brother Colin. At 16, she was a popular model in London, and then she went to San Francisco to help open a clothing shop just in time for the Flower Power movement, where Donovan wrote “Jennifer Juniper” for her. When that ended, she became one of the most familiar faces of Swinging London, partying with celebrities in the top clubs But looking for something deeper, she went to India to study meditation with The Maharishi with The Beatles.
Meanwhile, beautiful Jenny attracted a lot of attention but it was Mick Fleetwood she fell for , and they were together from the beginning of Fleetwood Mac until the peak of their stardom. They married in 1970, and divorced in 1976; then remarried in 1977 9nly to divorce again in 1978. They had two daughters together, but drugs, alcohol and the rock ‘n roll lifestyle finally drove them apart. She then married drummer Ian Wallace and it was during their 10-year marriage that Jenny extracted herself from her rock ‘n roll circus and went to school to become a research psychologist. She is now a popular writer and speaker on the subject of pop culture, music, and creativity.
Jennifer Juniper is due to be released at the New York Fest for Beatle Fans March 27 and will be available for purchase that same weekend.
