The best writing advice Jenny Feldon ever got was “live life first, write about it second.” With that in mind, she’s been a cocktail waitress, a yoga teacher, a camp counselor, a surgical coordinator and a telemarketer. She’s travelled through 33 states and 12 countries. Life experience definitely helped the creative process, but it was a relief when she decided to focus on what she loved best: writing about it all.
After getting her MFA in fiction from the New School University in 2006, Jenny planned to work and write and live with her new husband in their beloved Manhattan high-rise. Then her husband accepted a two-year expatriate assignment in India. So she traded coffee, subways, and dairy products for chai, water buffaloes and year-round pomegranates. She laughed a lot, cried a lot, blogged a lot, and learned never to take electricity or sidewalks for granted.
Back in the US, Jenny and her husband settled in Los Angeles where they were blessed with a daughter, Eva. Now, Jenny is a coffee-addicted, yoga-obsessed freelance writer -- and a full-time mom to a stubborn, adorable two-year-old and a small white dog named Tucker. She writes for Momlogic and chronicles her everyday adventures on her personal blog, Karma, Continued. Jenny and her family are eagerly awaiting the arrival of Baby #2 sometime in December.
