Meet the Author

Writing has always been my "thing," despite that D I got in handwriting in second grade (thanks a lot Mrs. Whatever Your Name Was). Early on I learned I could boost my flagging math grades by writing extra-credit reports. I figured if I couldn't compute, at least I could snow-job my way into a better grade. Ah, the fine art of fiction writing. As I grew up, void of more remunerative skills, I pursued a writing-related career. I wrote and edited for my college newspaper, worked in radio, was even a TV news reporter (don't ask). I earned a degree in broadcast journalism from Penn State, but quickly abandoned the TV career because I hated helmet hair, a job prerequisite at the time. I'll admit I was envious, watching all those college friends with business degrees racking in the big bucks in corporate America while I floundered in debt working at poverty level as a publicist on Capitol Hill. But after a while I got used to having my mattress on the floor, cardboard boxes for dresser drawers, and ramen noodles for dinner every night. Eventually I became a "glamorous" Washington photographer, shooting an eclectic range of events and people (including Prince Charles!). I knew I had arrived when I shot a World Welter Weight Boxing Championship and got spattered by the fighters' blood and saliva from my vantage point along the apron. But marriage and motherhood beckoned, and those professional "glory days" gave way to the raising of three children. The only writing I did for many years were grocery lists and an annual holiday letter to family and friends. I re-launched my writing career with the onset of a terrible drought in my state a few years ago. It dawned on me that with water rationing in place, no one would dare have a holiday party. After all, who could host a hundred houseguests for four hours of festive drinking yet ban them from using the bathroom? All that flushing would alert the water police! And so I wrote about it. Lucky for me, an editor immediately bought the story, which deluded me into believing that publishing was a piece of cake. Well, that piece of cake quickly grew stale, as I tried to sell more witty essays, with mixed success. I did eventually sell more of my writing, and my generous mother bought me a laptop, which enabled me to write while at soccer practice, which opened up a whole new world of opportunities for a mom on the run as I am.

    Fun Read!

    I loved this book, it made me return from my lunch break later than I should have for a couple of days. It was inspiring to watch Mary Kate leave her abusive husband and figure things out for herself alongside Smoothie, the hot, younger Southern guy she picks up on the side of the road. Sure picking up a hitchhiker is a bad idea, but this is fiction and not an advice column for women. There was some great chemistry between the two main characters that kept the storyline fun and steamy. I am definitely going to read some of Jenny's other books and highly recommend this one!
