Today I am so happy to welcome my friend Jen McGee to the blog. Jen is a talented photographer, great mom, wife, and blogger, AND is one of my most trusted beta-readers! I can definitely count on her for honest feedback and constructive ways to improve my novels, which is so amazingly helpful for any author.
Though we live far away from each other, Jen and I email often, trade thoughts about books, kids, work, and life. Like me, Jen loves coffee, chocolate, and traveling. She is also Chicago Cubs fan (her Instagram handle is cubsfan3410)!
