Jennifer has lived in the wilds of Los Angeles where she wrote her first book at the tender age of five, Iran where she developed a fear of camels and a fondness for pistachios, Hawaii with its balmy breezes and memories of learning to swim, and the San Francisco Bay area where she now lives with her children and husband. She loves to ask: what if…? This question has resulted in her writing short stories and novels where the characters experience heartbreak, find love, and discover the intricacies of life along the way.
THE MEMORY THIEF is her MG debut, and it touches on themes of memory, loyalty, and love. Her young adult novel BIRDY’S SONG won the 2017 Golden Heart ® and was featured in the Pitch Wars showcase. Two of her other books placed in the Golden Rose contest and Cleveland Rocks contest. She is currently working on another young adult novel, ALL THE STARS IN THE OCEAN, set in Hawaii, the home of her heart. She is represented by Stacey Glick at Dystel, Goderich & Bourret
