Graduate of East Carolina University with a dual degree in both Communications (Public Relations) and Political Science. I have worked successfully as a freelance writer for the past 5 years. Much of my work has been published in national magazines, local newspapers, online columns and blogs and I have had poetry published in The American Poetry Review. I have covered topics such as food and wine, travel and leisure, current events and issues, comedic pieces and satire. Any writing samples as well as references are available upon request. I recently released my first fiction novel, Popcorn For Breakfast, via CL Press and have been working diligently since May 2011 promoting it nationwide through book tours and signings. The novel is widely available in bookstores and via Amazon.com and Barnesandnobles.com as well as on Kindle. Finally, I also work as a food critic for a Houston area magazine and have begun my own food blog on my website. Please visit www.jennagleespen.com for more information on myself and my work.
