Jen Bradley was born and raised in the Philadelphia region. She has four great kids, ranging in age from kindergarten through high school. While they provide endless inspiration for story ideas, they allow her little time to actually write any of them. Passionate topics include everything from parenting independent and under-scheduled kids (love) to homework and class behavior charts (hate) to taking on the princesses (love/hate). Though most topics are sparked by her unofficial in-home lab school, many are also helped along by her Ph.D. in Urban Education. At her eldest daughter's last count, Jen had taught courses at nine different area colleges and universities.
