Jen LiMarzi grew up in New York City's northern suburbs or, as she likes to call it, purgatory where one exists in an odd state that is not quite country and not quite city.
An only child, her imagination was allowed to run wild and it often did. When she realized her life goal of growing up to be Debbie Harry or Cyndi Lauper would likely not pan out, she escaped to the University of Rochester. Educated in English, Biology, and how to dress for cold weather, she graduated and headed back down to metropolis to embark on a writing career.
Today Jen is an experienced writer, editor and storyteller within the medical communications industry. At her core, she is a funny little lady who loves mid-century architecture, cat-eye glasses, and turning day-to-day observations and nostalgia into entertaining essays.
After a decade of living in Sunnyside, Queens she headed north to experience life in Winooski, Vermont for several years. Realizing she was inherently a city girl at heart, she gleefully relocated to Chicago where she currently resides with her husband Eric, and a neurotic dog named Astro.
