Jinjer Stanton is a yoga teacher in Minneapolis, Minnesota. She is also an amateur naturalist and photographer. It is Jinjer's passion in life to observe the world and, if she can manage it, make sense of it. She wrote her new book,Mousenapped for three reasons: 1) because she has recently met a number of people who had talents when they were young that were, essentially, beaten out of them, 2) because she herself always felt like an outsider in her family, and 3) because she is fascinated by both grasshopper mice and the capacity for creatures of differing species to befriend one another.
She served as a minister for several years at a new thought church where she met several people who started out life like Mousenapped protagonist Sara. They had abilities that their parents couldn't value or believe in so those parents did everything in their power (often, with the best intentions) to weed those abilities out of their child. Jinjer is an herbalist who has experience with making salves like Aunt Nellie in the story.
Jinjer is the author of the Midwest Book Awards finalist Yoga for Every Room in Your House. She wrote Yoga for Every Room in Your House, because of her own struggles with finding a way to do yoga on a regular basis. Her writing appears in a several publications including The Edge: Soul of the Cities (www.soulofthecities.com) and Essential Wellness (www.tcwellness.com). Articles by Jinjer have been translated into both German and Italian.
