About

Obligatory Biographical Information:

I currently live in Atlanta, Georgia after having lived most of my life in Los Angeles, California. After self-identifying as an artist, graphic designer and illustrator since I was a child, I’ve since come to the conclusion that while a picture may be worth a 1,000 words, I’d rather have the words.

I have one husband, three cats, and a nearly infinite number of opinions on anything from feminism to the correct way to make a martini. I sometimes think that writing is my personal excuse for endless world-building, and an alibi for when the FBI wants to know why I’m doing all this research on suitcase nuclear weapons and M-theory. I have an obsessive love of semiotics, mythology, occult mysticism, and science. So basically: I’m a geek and proud.

    • The original plan was to self-publish, but I’m waiting to hear back from a publisher so…it’s all a mystery! I certainly don’t think there’s anything wrong with self-publishing, and it may yet be a fallback for me. I think it’s a lot more work to self-publish though, so it would be nice to have an agent/publisher who tackles such stuff for me. I wouldn’t spurn this help!

      • I agree. I’ve sent my novel out, gotten a couple rejections, and I’m still waiting on a few (and probably will send out a few more queries). But the more I wait the more I want to self-publish even though it’s so much work. I’m just so impatient! Lol I wish you luck with your querying!! 🙂

      • As you can probably tell from my posts Alexis, the publishing deal fell through and I’m back to self-publishing. I’ll let you know how it all goes!

      • No problem! It’s up to you if you want to do it, I know some people I nominated did not want to, and I think the next time I get an award like this I might not either.

    You certainly are getting published now. I pre-ordered your book. It’s a great read so far Jenn. Well done!

    Just finished ‘The Ruin Of Kings’….thanks for the good ‘read’!
    FYI – page 373/1st para/5th line: ‘and I don’t who that person is either’….should it have been ‘and I don’t know who that person is either’? Thought I’d let you know if you were unaware of it so can be corrected for future printings.

    Where can I get a copy of The Culling Fields? I can’t find it anywhere either in e-book or hard copy. I live in British Columbia. Thanks!

    • Well…that’s because the Culling Fields isn’t for sale anywhere (and really, a good thing too). The only book I have available right now anywhere is The Ruin of Kings, which is what became of The Culling Fields after it was torn apart, re-written from the ground up, given excellent editing and treatment from the wonderful people at Tor, and basically made better in every possible way.

        Great, thanks! I’m currently reading The Ruin of Kings and didn’t know if I should read The Culling Fields before.
