Juanita Havill worked as a translator for companies in France and the United States and also worked as an instructor and lecturer in the United States. Juanita Havill had begun writing as a child and after her own children were born she "settled down to write." In 1984 under the pseudonym Jennifer Havel she published The Wacky Rulebook , a "Parker Brothers storeybook" about behavior. In 1986, she published her first picture book for children, Jamaica's Find , under her own name. The book received several awards including the 1987 Ezra Jack Keats New Writer award. In 1991, Juanita Hall received a Minnesota Book Award nomination for Leona and Ike (1990). Juanita Havill writes both picture books and stories for older children. Her books, many of which feature the same characters such as Jamaica, are warm stories that focus on issues such as sibling relationships, responsibility, and school happenings that relevant and understandable to young readers. Her stories also feature characters, including African Americans and Mexican Americans, from various ethnic backgrounds. Juanita Havill has also written a fairy tale Kentucky Troll (1993), the story of a Swedish troll who tries to live in disguise amongst his new neighbors in Kentucky.
