Jennifer lives in Chicago and works at a private university library. Being surrounded by books revived her love of writing after the last few jobs sucked her soul completely dry. In decent weather, you can find her banging away (sometimes muttering profanity) in her “office”: a lawn chair pulled up to a cement wall with a truncated view of Sears (yes, *Sears*) Tower.

Her fiction has been published in Dread Naught but Time, Christmas Lites VIII, Writings to Stem Your Existential Dread, 72 Hours of Insanity: Anthology of the Games, vol. 2 and vol. 3, as well as Literary Orphans Journal and Foliate Oak Literary Magazine.

You can follow her unchecked blatherings on Twitter (@JWorrellWrites) and Facebook (@jenniferworrellwrites).
