When a twist of fate landed Jennifer at the "Reading with Ripa” roundtable discussion with Kelly Ripa and Meg Cabot, her entrée into the publishing world officially began. As a mystery writer, columnist, and book reviewer, Jennifer dishes the scoop on the latest happenings in all genres of books. As the book editor at Momtrends Media, which includes the websites Momtrends.com and The Shopping Mama.com, Jen has her finger on the pulse of what trendy moms are reading. Her first mystery novel, Par for the Course, was published in 2010. Country Clubbed, the second book in the Piper O'Donnell Social Lite Mystery Series, was released in 2013. The third installment, Murder by the Minutes, is in stores now.
To keep herself away from her favorite retailers Ann Taylor and Lilly Pulitzer, Jennifer serves on the National Board of the Arthritis Foundation. As a national trainer for The Arthritis Foundation’s Aquatic and Land Exercise Classes and a national spokesperson, she is an advocate for those like herself who suffer from arthritis, the nation’s #1 cause of disability.
When asked how she manages to do all of these things and actually get some sleep at night, Jen simply replied, “It’s just Par for the Course.” Hmm! Now where have we heard that before?
