Jenny Gardiner


Jenny Gardiner is the author of the Bestselling novel SLIM TO NONE, the award-winning novel SLEEPING WITH WARD CLEAVER, the memoir WINGING IT: A MEMOIR OF CARING FOR A VENGEFUL PARROT WHO'S DETERMINED TO KILL ME (now published as BITE ME: A PARROT, A FAMILY AND A WHOLE LOT OF FLESH WOUNDS), and the novels SOMETHING IN THE HEIR; HEIR TODAY GONE TOMORROW; ANYWHERE BUT HERE; ACCIDENTALLY ON PURPOSE; WHERE THE HEART IS; COMPROMISING POSITIONS; the essay collection NAKED MAN ON MAIN STREET, and a contributor to the upcoming humorous dog-lovers anthology, I'M NOT THE BIGGEST BITCH IN THIS RELATIONSHIP. Her work has been found in Ladies Home Journal, the Washington Post and on NPR’s Day to Day. She likes to say she honed her fiction writing skills while working as a publicist for a US Senator. Other jobs have included: an orthodontic assistant (learning quite readily that she was not cut out for a career in polyester), a waitress (probably her highest-paying job), a TV reporter, a pre-obituary writer, and a photographer (claim to fame: being hired to shoot Prince Charles--with a camera, silly!). She lives in Virginia with her husband, three kids, two dogs, one cat, one rabbit, and a gregarious parrot. In her free time she studies Italian, dreams of traveling to exotic locales, and feels very guilty for rarely attempting to clean the house.
