About Me

"For a long time now I have tried simply to write the best I can. Sometimes I have good luck and write better than I can." - Ernest Hemingway

Hello. Welcome to my blog. Pull up a chair, and I'll make you some tea.

My name is Jenny. I'm a writer of the common and the ordinary with the hopes to make them uncommon and extraordinary. I write truth, I write life. And now I do so for all to enjoy. I like to blog about my attempts to embrace my passions and bring more happiness to this 30-something American life.

I am a Michigander through and through. We've got cities, we've got nature, we've got beaches, and we've got beer. Who could ask for more?

Please feel free to look around. I hope you like what you see.

“One of the most terrifying aspects of publishing stories and books is the realization that they are going to be read, and read by strangers. I had never fully realized this before, although I had of course in my imagination dwelt lovingly upon the thought of the millions and millions of people who were going to be uplifted and enriched and delighted by the stories I wrote.” - Shirley Jackson
