I got my start in blogging in 2009 when I began writing book reviews on Luxury Reading. About a year later, I started to write book and product reviews for Simply Stacie. I continue to contribute to both sites, but toyed with the idea of beginning my own site at my friends’ insistence.
Reading and writing have always been a passion of mine; my parents’ worst form of punishment was hiding all of my books from me when my grades were too low. In college I graduated with an English degree and a minor in Sociology. Eventually I put my degree to use as a technical writer. It was a short-lived career, but through it I learned that I prefer creative writing.
I eventually landed my high school dream job and worked at Barnes & Noble until I became pregnant with our daughter Zoe. We decided it was best for our family for me to be a SAHM; I’m so lucky to be able to be with her all day, even if I don’t always realize that. Being a SAHM has also allowed me to pursue new ways to put my love for writing to good use.
Literally Jen was born in December 2011 with the support of my amazing friends and family members. I hope you’ll stop by often to keep up with me and all of my crazy adventures!
