About Me

Me & kids with Chris Grabenstein | Fefferbooks

Me with my boys and author Chris Grabenstein at Rediscovered Books in Feb 2014.

Hi, I’m Jen! I’m a 30-something freelance copyeditor, and I love books–the smell of them, the feel of them, and especially the people inside them. I started reading around age three, and I guess I just never really stopped being a devourer of writing. I have a degree in English literature, and I love big, heavy literary novels. I’m also a fan of fast-paced, action-packed, swoony YA fiction, so you’ll find a good mix of both, here. I love talking books with my friends, so I can’t wait to share the ones I love here with you! Please feel free to comment or tweet or email me–I love talking with you about books or making recommendations, and I really want this to be a place where YOU feel comfortable. If there’s anything I can do to help with that, let me know! Let’s chat!

When I’m not reading, I spend most of time chasing my two sets of twins around (identical older boys, and a fraternal boy and girl), and I love to cook (and eat!) and knit. I also started running a couple of years ago, and now I’m kind of addicted to weight lifting and yoga, too! I sing opera and jazz and I play the piano, and once in a while I sew. But mostly, I love a great story!

Oh–and why “Feffer?” It’s how my niece used to pronounce Jennifer. Funny kid. 🙂
