A consummate student, Jennifer Desmarais has three degrees and just graduated from her fourth. These include a Bachelor of Science in Biochemistry and Chemistry, a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology, and a Bachelor of Education from the University of Ottawa. Following her passion for travel, she just completed her diploma in Tourism and Travel at Algonquin College.
She works for Orleans Travel & Cruise Centre in Ottawa, and loves helping clients design trips with a geeky/nerdy theme.
Co-founder of JenEric Designs, she creates unique geeky crocheted items and writes bi-weekly articles on sexuality and bi-weekly articles on Fandom Travel. She is also one of the co-organizers and founders of CON (Creative Ottawa Nerds craft fair).
She was the lead copy-editor (How did that happen?) at TEGG, and has edited two books in the Hellmaw line. If you know her at all, you know that horror/thriller is REALLY not her thing, so she considers this a big accomplishment.
Jen has written one short story that won a contest in 2016. You can read it here.
She lives in Ottawa with her husband and their library of over 2700 books. They had their first child, a daughter, in September 2016.
