WINNER: Best Historical Fiction –Pinnacle Book Awards

Pioneer Passage Best Historical Fiction

I did it! Pioneer Passage, book 3 in my Journey of Cornelia Rose Series just received the Pinnacle Book Award for BEST HISTORICAL FICTION Winter 2022.

Pioneer Passage is a truly delightful, meaty read that will satisfy any reader who enjoys an excellent adventure exceptionally well told.”

Grant Leishman, Readers’ Favorite *****FIVE STARS



I am ecstatic that the critics have unanimously given me rave reviews!

What makes Ms. Collen’s books such coveted reads are her innate ability to master the art of marrying fiction with fact and the sensational life she breathes into her fictional characters; making them a part of the history. “

-Dianna Lunsford Feathered Quill

“JF Collen’s portrait of a woman who embraces changing mindsets and friendships represents a convincingly realistic account of pioneer life and Oregon Trail experiences that focuses on women’s’ disparate lives and motivations for undertaking the arduous journey.

-D. Donavan Senior Reviewer, MidWest Book Review

The feeling that readers and critics enjoyed reading my book and that my characters’ struggles are real and relevant to them fills me with elation.

Collen skillfully pens the struggle of women to stay silent or to speak out during this time of history.

-Cheryl Rodriguez Readers Favorite -*****5 Stars
