Bio:

Jennifer Currier is a former English teacher and dolphin trainer, raised in the desert of Roswell, New Mexico. She often suffers from wanderlust and a constant hunger for gelato. Jennifer earned her graduate degree from Dartmouth College, where she studied creative writing and met her first Rhode Islander. It only took one coffee milk and a clam cake to convince her to return to The Ocean State. She maintains several odd jobs and blogs under the alias Queen Jenevere. She plans to keep traveling, writing, and promoting herself as "sometimes funny." You can follow her on Twitter at @fushilou
