Although Jennifer Wiza’s written about a reality dating show, a prescient pastry chef, and a woman who inspired an 80’s rock hit, she has not spent hours dissecting The Bachelor, she can barely follow the directions on the back of a Betty Crocker box, and she can only dream of a long-haired, guitar-thrashing rocker even giving her a second glance.
While she cringes at the thought of being called Jenny again after all these years, her first teen book Plan B, was published under Jenny O’Connell by MTV Books (March 2006). Jenny’s second teen book, The Book of Luke, arrived in April 2007, and her Martha’s Vineyard Novels, Local Girls and Rich Boys, were published in June 2008.
Her days as a high school senior may be long behind her, but Jennifer did receive her B.A. from Smith College and her M.B.A. from the University of Chicago.
