Get To Know Jennifer

Sometimes Jen or Jenny. Even JBird.

A graduate of UNC Charlotte, Jennifer has a BA in English. She has taught middle school language arts and high school English, teaching in both Texas and North Carolina. Growing up in Charlotte, NC since she was 10, Jennifer very much considers herself a southern girl, even though she doesn't drink sweet tea.


Currently, Jennifer is working on writing several children's picture book manuscripts, and she has ideas and plans for many more. She is an active member of SCBWI.  Attending workshops and conferences, collaborating with her critique groups, networking, supporting fellow writers, and working on her craft are her main priorities.
