I’m Jen. I’m now in my 30s. I write stuff, sometimes.
The long version:
I was born and raised in Southern California. I moved to New York in the late 1990s, went to NYU, worked for a few publishing companies, and eventually burned out. I moved to Vermont, where I lived for a few years. Then I moved to the UK and have been living in a small and fairly dilapidated seaside resort town.
There was all sorts of drama in all of those years, but I’m not going to blow that load on an about page. Saving that gold for real posts….
I have a degree in English and American literature, and have been working far too long on another one in television studies. As such, I’m over-read and watch more television than most doctors would say is healthy.
My various health problems give me something to complain about. I drink far too much coffee. Weird things happen when I’m around.
I’m usually looking for things that will pay the bills, especially writing and editing jobs. I sometimes daydream about buying a big chunk of land.
If there’s something you’d like to see me write about on here or elsewhere, drop me a message by way of this handy contact form…
