I started reading
romance with Phyllis Whitney. I
think I imprinted on Columbella. It was a bit too scary for me, but at the same
time it gripped me with a story of a girl whose mother is eating
her alive. I also started
reading Georgette Heyer about the same time, and very many books by P.G. Wodehouse, whose romantic comedies don't have a woman's touch
but are nevertheless very happy and cleverly plotted.
I also got into science
fiction at around age twelve. See
my other website, www.jenniferstevenson.com,
for stuff about my fantasy and science fiction stories.
I live in Chicago, where I own a scenery
shop, Hawkeye Scenic Studios, www.hawkeyescenic.com,
with my husband. We have
two cats, a yard full of big trees, and way too many books.
I swim every day and ride horses several times a week. For our twenty-fifth wedding anniversary my husband
built me something he calls 'the bubbaque'
out of two big steel drums and a motor.
I'm always interested in learning new wrinkles on pig roasting,
so send me your pig roasting wisdom!
