Jen tutored in the University of Iowa's Writing Center for eight and a half years. She has taught English courses at Beloit, Cornell, and Whitman Colleges, including American literary surveys, dystopian literature, Native American literature, and Australian aboriginal/New Zealand Maori literature. Her dissertation discusses nineteenth-century women's Indian captivity narratives, a sensational genre that was as popular as action-adventure films are today. She enjoys reading dystopian novels (like The Hunger Games), traveling (recently to Australia), and playing with her cats (who keep her from typing when they walk across her keyboard).
