About (Extended Version)

Jennifer Kaul has loved writing for as long as she can remember. In elementary school, she crayoned classics such as “The Halloween Hoot” and “Monster Gets Lost at the Zoo.” In middle school, she and her sister penned a series of scary stories called The Dungeon of Doom, though most were tragically lost in a computer crash. In high school, Jennifer wrote notes to friends and essays for classes, and in college, she created lesson plans, assessments, and what she hoped were clever social media status updates.

After college, Jennifer moved from her mitten state of Michigan to Minnesota. There, she taught lots of awesome kids English/Language Arts skills and created curriculum to help other teachers do the same. She started a family, started her freelance writing career, and started work on her first novel.

Jennifer is currently revising that novel, an upper middle grade science fiction adventure that explores the relationship between young teens and technology. She enjoys learning and improving her craft with the help of her weekly critique group, writing mentor, and the various groups and organizations in which she participates.

Jennifer lives in Minnesota with her wonderfully goofy husband and their two curious kids. When she isn’t writing, she enjoys reading, making music, savoring good food, and spending time with family and friends.
