She also blogs at “Teaching My Baby to Read” with the mission of sparking a national debate on the important role parents play in education.

Jennifer’s debut novel, GENESIS GIRL (Georgia McBride Media Group/Month9Books, June 2016), is speculative YA fiction. Shielded from the Internet for eighteen years, Blanca’s lack of a virtual footprint makes her so valuable that she’s auctioned off to the highest bidder.
