Jenn Bouchard is a Navy brat who moved eight times before going to Bates College in Lewiston, Maine. There she helped run large concerts and campus-wide events, survived the epic ice storm of 1998, met her future husband, and graduated with a degree in Political Science. She then moved to Boston, where she fell in love with the Red Sox and completed her master’s degree and teaching certification at Tufts University. She lived in the Chicago area for twelve years, but then came “home” to Boston, where she got season tickets to Fenway and began writing fiction. She has been a high school social studies teacher for twenty years and is a regular presenter at the National Council for the Social Studies (NCSS) annual conference. A mom of two, Jenn is an avid cook, volunteers as a fundraiser and reunion planner for her Bates College class, and is the past president of the alumni association. She is a member of the Women’s Fiction Writers Association, Grub Street, and Women in Development of Greater Boston. FIRST COURSE is her first novel.
