Jennifer is a twentysomething artist/designer/creative/dreamer. "Restricted: A novel of half-truths" is Jen's first book, a challenge she took upon herself for National Novel Writing Month; although, writing a book had always been on her long list of things to do before she dies. Born and raised in Baltimore, Maryland, she attended Stevenson University and earned a bachelor's degree in Visual Communication Design.
Since college, her life has taken a different direction than most her age, due to her battle with an eating disorder. Although overcoming an eating disorder is a very difficult process, Jen is hopeful that the obstacle was put there for a reason. According to the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator, she is an INFJ, one of the rarest personality types.
On a less serious note, she stays awake much too late for her own good, enjoys thrill rides and the rush of adrenaline, and watches The Golden Girls every morning while eating breakfast.
Jen is currently working on her second book, due to be released some time in 2011.
