Seattle author Jennie Shortridge's latest novel, Love Water Memory, released in April 2013. She has published four other acclaimed novels: When She Flew, Love and Biology at the Center of the Universe, Eating Heaven, and Riding with the Queen. Her nonfiction work has appeared in national magazines and newspapers, and her one-and-only published short story, "Simpatico," launched her novel writing career in 1997. When not writing, teaching writers workshops, or volunteering, Jennie stays busy as a founding member of Seattle7Writers.org, a collective of authors devoted both to raising funds for community literacy projects and to raising awareness of Northwest literature. In her previous lives she has been a plumber, a cook, and a working musician. No, she cannot fix your toilet, but she is hard at work on her next novel.
