Meet the Author

Jennifer Briggs is a freelance writer and author whose ancestors helped establish Texas as well as threw dead cats in passing vehicles on Halloween.

At 18, she was hired by the Fort Worth Star-Telegram after serving as the Texas Ranger's first ball girl. At one point she assumed the personna of Betty Ann Stout, an outspoken but wholly fictional pro-wrestling columnist who drew a loyal following. Later she covered the Philadelphia Phillies and Green Bay Packers for other newspapers.

Her books include, "Quoatable Billy Graham," "The Book of Landry," "Strive to Excel: The Will and Wisdom of Vince Lombardi," "A Very Brady Guide to Life," "Nolan Ryan: The Authorized Pictorial History."

She and her husband Mike live in Fort Worth with three large dogs who eat windows.
