Jennifer Stevenson bought a bed last summer, but it wasn’t possessed. She loves dark chocolate, Chicago, and crows, and she would never buy cigarettes for pigeons. After years of trying to be a fragile artiste, she has released her inner silliness. She lives in the Chicago area with her husband of thirty years and two cats. Her first novel, Trash Sex Magic, was longlisted for the Nebula Award in 2005 and 2006 and shortlisted for the Locus Awards Best First Novel in 2005.
