Who am I?

Hi, I’m Jennifer, aka Jen, and I’m an analyst by day, writer by night, cat lover all the time. More about the cats in a bit.

What do I like?


If the book is character-driven and full of emotion, I’m all over it. Especially YA, my fave!

I try to read from every genre, but horror is generally a no-go, because I’m a scaredy cat.

Watching TV

I love shows that are nostalgic: Freaks and Geeks

offbeat: Wonderfalls

or full of action: Agents of Shield

I’ve seen every episode of Degrassi (minus Kids of), all the way back to the 80s. The more angst, the better!

I started watching General Hospital when I was in middle school and I’ve laughed, cried, and gasped with these characters more than any others. It just doesn’t feel like a day if Sonny Corinthos isn’t importing coffee.

Eating snacks

Not even kidding. Popcorn is my true love and fries/tots are my weakness. I wash it all down with a cup of decaf green tea.


Since I grew up in the 80s/90s, music from those decades will always have my heart. I practically wore out my copies of Wish by The Cure and Forever Your Girl by Paula Abdul.

Tell me “Straight Up” is not one of the most perfect songs ever composed and I will fight you.

My first concert was Chris Cornell solo at 9:30 Club in DC.


No, not struggling uphill with a heavy pack for 10 miles. That sounds awful.

I enjoy what I call “meandering hikes,” which is me wandering through the woods for an hour or two, never more than a few miles, and staring at trees while breathing deeply.

I’m lucky enough to live near a national park and several state parks and national forests. So much glorious wilderness!

Note: I only hike during fall and winter, maybe early spring, because I hate all things heat/humidity.

Wanna see pics of my cats?

Sure, you do!

And here are a few of my little corner of the world
