After moving eight times before college, Jenn was happy to land in Maine.  At Bates College, she helped run large concerts and campus-wide events, survived the ice storm of 1998, met her future husband, and graduated with a degree in Political Science.  From there she moved to Boston, where she fell in love with the Red Sox and earned a master's degree and teaching certification from Tufts University.  After a twelve year stint in Chicago, she and her family moved back to Boston, got season tickets to Fenway, and Jenn began working on FIRST COURSE, her debut novel.  She has been a high school social studies teacher for 20 years, and she is a regular presenter at the National Council for the Social Studies (NCSS) annual conference.  In her spare time, Jenn volunteers as both a fundraiser and secretary for her Bates College class and is a past president of the alumni association. She is a member of Grub Street, Women Fiction Writers' Association, and Women in Development of Greater Boston. She is an avid cook and is always planning her next adventure. FIRST COURSE will be published in 2021 by TouchPoint Press.
