Jennifer Rardin

About the Author

Jennifer Rardin was born in Evansville, Indiana on April 28, 1965. Her mom told her almost every year what crappy weather it had been that day. However she liked to think of her birthday as the first frost-free date for her planting area. (See what happens when you grow up around farmers? Scary, huh?)

After a youth spent up to her eyeballs in fairy tales, Nordic myths and supernatural legends she made the solid and practical decision to go to college and major in English. After which she never really held a well paying job until Jaz Parks came along! Which is why her kids loved to sing that song to her from the musical “Avenue Q.” The one that begins with the line, “What do you do with a B.A. in English?”

Once she figured out the answer to that question, she wrote Once Bitten, Twice Shy. She spent most of her adult life in an old farmhouse along with her husband and two teenagers. No pets since the cat died, but the birds seem to appreciate his absence. They come to feast at the feeders where she used to write on the back porch in the cool of the morning. A lovely tribute to a wonderful writer.

Jennifer passed away suddenly at home in September 2010, just after finishing the last Jaz Parks novel.
