Jen is a New Orleans local (not a native – that’s a very different breed) who divides her attention between books, friends, family, and Mardi Gras.

She is a regular contributor and events coordinator with New Orleans Mom, one of the largest parenting sites in Louisiana. She has also provided guest contributions to New Orleans Living Magazine and Time Worn Tales. Her flash fiction has been included in Spark Magazine.

When she’s not volunteering at her two bugs’ school (one boy, one girl) or staring blurry-eyed at her computer searching for words, she enjoys being active and adventurous. Jen can be found walking at the park, taking yoga classes, and swinging Kettlebells around the city. She loves chats at coffee shops with a good friend and insists on having a family fun day at home once a week. Those days are for couch time, completing puzzles, or playing Nintendo while her Beagle mix Maddie snoozes on her lap and her fat cat Cinco hangs nearby.

After a twenty year career in Software Engineering, Jen switched gears and became a full-time writer. She likes to share the stories she’s written privately since a young girl, and is currently editing Dark Rooms, a paranormal romance.
