Jennifer Lohmann is a Rocky Mountain girl at heart, having grown up in southern Idaho and Salt Lake City. She's always been a reader-of romance novels, mysteries, nonfiction, cereal boxes, etc. If it had words, she tried to read it. Unlike many voracious readers, she didn't major in English in college. She decided to pursue a more practical degree, graduating from the University of Chicago with a Bachelor of Arts in Economics. Practicality is something Jennifer aspires to, rather than something she is always able to achieve. After graduating from college, she moved to Shanghai to teach English for a year. When she moved back to the United States, she decided to study library science because (as her husband said) librarians know everything. Her husband's suggestion was a good one. Jennifer has been a public librarian for several years and was Romance Writers of America (RWA) Librarian of the Year in 2010. Jennifer had been writing, on and off, for many years when she won the Librarian of the Year award. Being at the RWA conference reminded her how much she loved writing and she became more serious about it. As part of Harlequin's "So You Think You Can Write" Contest, she was offered a contract on her first book in 2012, to be published in 2013. She spends her days surrounded by people, talking about books, and creating community. Her nights (and early mornings) are spent imagining the loves of other people and writing their stories. She lives in the Southeast with a dog, three chickens, four cats, and a husband who gamely eats everything she cooks.
