Prior to that, she worked as an independent bookseller at the Odyssey Bookshop in South Hadley, MA.

James, Ayelet Waldman, Dan Brown, Mona Simpson, Chris Bohjalian, E L James, Thomas Cahill, Claire Messud, Erin Morgenstern, Joseph Ellis, and Karen Armstrong. A native of northwest Connecticut, Jen graduated from Bucknell University with honors in English. Jen divides her time between ACM’s New York office and her home in Western Massachusetts.
