About Jennie

I'm the creator/writer of Flutter, a graphic novel series published by 215 Ink. Featured on Law & Order: SVU and in the New York Times, Flutter is one of the best LGBT graphic novels of 2013 and 2015, according to The Advocate. Bleeding Cool lists Flutter as one of the 15 best indie comics of 2014. Comic legend Gail Simone says that Flutter is "a truly thrilling graphic novel." Flutter, Volume Two: Don't Let Me Die Nervous is a 2015 INDIEFAB Book of the Year finalist. I'm also the author of the YA novel, A Boy Like Me, which is a Next Generation Indie Book Awards finalist, a 2014 INDIEFAB Book of the Year finalist, and one of Foreword Reviews' 10 Best Indie YA novels for 2014. I'm an ongoing contributor to the award-winning, New York Times best-selling FUBAR comic anthologies. I live in Boston with my girlfriend and teach writing at Grub Street, Boston's independent writing center. I've also lived in Chicago and Los Angeles. More: jenniewood.com.

Unique traits: My nickname is Full Metal Jennie. There's no challenge too daunting. I will get it done.
