We're Adding Another Fiction Femme Fatale!

I'm way beyond excited to introduce our newest member to the Fiction Femme Fatales...

Jenn Baker!!!

 I met Jenn last year at the Write On Con which if you haven't heard of it already, is a boatload of absolutely free & awesome online seminars, panels, agent pitches, and critique partner matchups (and so, so much more) for children's authors that happens every August. You can find out more about it here. We swapped work and over the past year became regular critique partners. Jenn is my final puzzle piece, the last critique partner I needed to complete my trifecta of fabulousness. I owe her HUGE for helping me to get my book agent and editor ready. Once I introduced Jenn to  Krystalyn and Stefanie, none of us could imagine the Femme Fatales without her. We asked her to join and are pleased as punch that she accepted! Jenn will now take our fourth Friday slot for each month and contribute her own flash fiction based on that month's picture prompt, which means we will be asking for flash fiction submissions from you in a slightly different manor (stay tuned this month for the new guidelines and for our next VERY BIG GIVEAWAY). For now, here's Jenn's picture and biography.  

A native New Yorker, Jenn Baker has been writing since she entered the academic institution and continues to do so every moment she gets. Jenn works as a production editor in academic publishing; has been a mentor for Girls Write Now; and also freelances as an ESL tutor, proofreader/editor, and food blogger. In addition, she is a big baking enthusiast (Yes, Baker bakes). Jenn's writing tends to focus on relationships, how they grow and how they define us. Her writing ranges from short fiction to young adult but is character centric at it's core. She is steadily working on a linked story collection and light sci-fi YA novel with diverse casts.

You can follow her on Twitter and read her writing and/or see pictures of baking shenanigans on her website.
