Jennifer has been writing ever since she could hold a pencil.


Her early works were mostly abstract cards to her parents and hastily scribbled notes to

the North Pole.  In fourth grade, she created her very own newspaper. Although the

articles were fiction and the crosswords easy, it was a defining moment.


Because that's when Jennifer realized she always wanted to write; loved to write; had to write.

Today, Jennifer's heart belongs to kidlit. She is an award-winning author, pre-kindergarten teacher, and former marketing guru. She’s written everything from multi-media campaigns to radio ads, brochures to blogs. These days, Jennifer is a regular feature contributor to FACES magazine, having written over 50 non-fiction articles & interviews for Cricket Media.


She is also very active in the kidlit community. She's a member of SCBWI, Julie Hedlund's 12 x 12, the Children's Book Academy & Picture Book Palooza Speaker, and a co-founder/co-creater of #SUNWRITEFUN, a non-fiction picture book writing contest.


PS She’s also pretty brilliant at Scrabble and making heritage chili sauce,

but lousy when it comes to catching frisbees or using an iron.

(Does anyone even use an iron any more?!).
