Jen Luerssen grew up in New Jersey and then lived for 20 years in the San Francisco Bay area. She has held various jobs in her adult life. Some examples are nanny, waitress, receptionist, dispatcher, caterer and finally teacher. She spent the past 8 years teaching 4th and 5th graders, until last year when she felt the call to write. It's been plaguing her thoughts and dreams for years, and those thoughts finally fought their way out.
Jen loves to read, obsessively. She has an unhealthy attachment to her e-reader and is rarely seen without it. She'll read anything, but especially loves a good smutty or a post-apocalyptic young adult book.
After "retiring" from teaching, Jen sat down and wrote a book and it was the most fun she's ever had working. She is self-published even though she's not sure how it works and hopes that people like her stories.
Jen is back in her native New Jersey and lives with her husband and daughter, enjoying suburban life.
