Jenni L. Walsh spent her early years chasing around cats, dogs, and chickens in Philadelphia's countryside, before dividing time between a soccer field and a classroom at Villanova University. She put her marketing degree to good use as an advertising copywriter, zip-code hopping with her husband to DC, NYC, NJ, and not surprisingly, back to Philly. There, Jenni's passion for words continued, adding author to her resume. She now balances her laptop with a kid on each hip, and a four-legged child at her feet.

At the beginning of the novel, I’ve given Bonn a fictional name, Bonnelyn. I was going for something wholesome, because that’s what she was. She sang in her church’s choir. She was a straight A student. She was devoted to her family and friends. And she had a boyfriend, who wasn’t Clyde! Bonn also came from poverty, which made her ache for more out of life. She wanted to be somebody. Her background and her aspirations are ultimately what lead her to pick up a gun in Becoming Bonnie, so it's certainly fair to attach the word "gun" to her. Now the cigar-smoking part has a funnier bit of history. There are playful, joking photos of Bonnie with a cigar in her mouth that were later found by the police and circulated via newspapers. Bonnie was mortified by that photo and even reached out to the media to express how she doesn't smoke cigars!(less)

I was really curious about who the duo, and Bonnie specifically, was besides outlaws and what led Bonnie to make the choices that she did. I read various anecdotes and diaries, and yes, I believe that Bonnie and Clyde were truly smitten with each other. Even though in love, I also think they got in too deep. Bonnie's sister is quoted as saying, “The kids led a rough life and they wouldn’t want anyone—then or now—to follow in their footsteps.”(less)

“But holding a book always puts me at ease, knowing a happy ending is between my fingertips.”
Jenni L. Walsh, Becoming Bonnie

“He nods, "Afterward, I helped you home, pushing both our bikes, while you hobbled next to me, doing your best not to cry."
"I didn't."
"You didn't. Not 'til I cleaned your cut. But I saw something more than tears in your eyes as I bandaged your knee. You trusted me and you needed me. I swore to myself that I'd never let you be hurt again.”
Jenni L. Walsh, Becoming Bonnie

“I want a simple life, away from the rules and the people telling me that I'm doing wrong.”
Jenni L. Walsh, Becoming Bonnie
