Meet Jenn. She's another one of the wonderful girls I met at the retreat. She's awesome. She actually picked me up at the airport and we spent three hours in the car together on the way to the cabin. It was so much fun. Our topics ranged from writing (of course) to Prison Break (not her prison break, but the TV show).
Jenn writes YA Fantasy (do I sense a theme here?) and I get the privilege of being one of her alpha/beta readers (do I sense a theme here?). To learn more about her awesome books, visit her website.
This girl is a people person. Really, people meet her and they love her. And I completely understand why. She's genuine and fun and knows exactly when to talk and exactly when to listen. She's had lots of experiences in her young life that make her wise beyond her years. She's great at giving advice and encouragement.
She writes with determination and dedication and views setbacks as learning experiences. She takes the time to study writing and is good at applying what she learns expertly. She is very good at sharing what she's learned from writer's conferences and books in a way that's to the point and easy to understand.
A few tidbits about Jenn: *She has an amazing voice *She has great taste in music *She rocks out on the drums in guitar hero *Her hair is awesome *She's afraid of heights *She makes some amazing gumbo *She's a speed demon *She's really funny
See, like I said, this is one amazing girl.
And last, but not least, I will spotlight Michelle in a couple days. :)
