Jen DeLuca was born and raised in Virginia, but there weren’t enough alligators and hurricanes so she relocated to Florida as soon as she could.
Her first career was in theatre, where she served as a wardrobe master for regional theatres both large and small, and also worked backstage as an ice-show dresser. (She can strip down an ice skater and shove him into a Klingon costume in less than a minute. Where’s THAT Skill & Endorsement category, LinkedIn?) After working with temperamental actors, the next logical step was temperamental lawyers, so she switched to the legal field, where she currently works as a litigation paralegal. So far, no one’s needed to wear a Klingon costume, but when that day comes she’s ready.
Jen lives in Central Florida with a husband and a house full of rescued pets. She spends her days picking dog hair off her clothes and arguing with the cat about who gets to sit in the office chair. (Spoiler: the cat often wins.) She likes latte-flavored lattes, the Oxford comma, and Hokies football. She thinks its sucks that guacamole costs extra, but she’ll pay for it anyway.
She is a proud member of RWA and CFRWA.
