Jen Richter is an avid reader, a professional artist, the wife of a veterinarian, a font of useless knowledge, and extremely talkative. She has a predilection for fantasy, and also enjoys comedy, weird history, sociology, sci-fi, trivia, and period mysteries. If she recommends a personal read, it's probably both entertaining and really strange. A textbook nerd and a very speedy reader, at age 9 she took several sci-fi books to Disney World in a fanny-pack (this was 1996) to read while waiting in line for rides. The fanny-pack is long gone, but she still almost always has a book in her bag.
