Hey there! I’m Jen. I’ve independently published 4 novels, have 2 more and and a few short stories in the works, and am working on a memoir in my “spare time.” (That gets the back burner most of the time.) I do all this while supervising an IT team of 10 people in my day job, putting in 40+ hours a week in the office, and sometimes more in the evenings and weekends.
I’ve found a way to balance my day job with my writing career, as well as still having time to spend with family and friends. Over the years I’ve refined my writing and publishing process, and continue to make tweaks as I learn more about the ever-changing publishing industry.
I’ve spent hundreds and hundreds of hours listening to podcasts, reading books and blogs about writing, and learning by trial and error. I taught myself, through long hours and research, overcoming countless stumbling blocks – including the worst obstacle of them all, self-doubt. Now I want to share that knowledge with you and help to make your journey to publication easier and faster!
I’m a member of the St. Louis Publisher’s Association and the St. Louis Writer’s Guild. I’ve completed several writing workshops, including “Pitches & Blurbs”, a 4 week online workshop with Dean Wesley Smith.
