Biographical and Professional Information

Jennifer Stevenson grew up in the feral spaces between Chicago and the western suburbs, where she befriended dogs, trees, little old ladies, and a lot of very out-of-date music. Since then she has repaired real and rubber sunflowers, renovated stores and factory spaces, skated in roller derby, painted a dude farm, and typed way too many words. For fun, she speed skates, swims, gardens, and rides horses.

It’s got villains and magic and even a tornado, along with characters who go through unexpected trans-formations (some quite literal). It’s a page-turner. Raedawn Somershoe lives in a trailer on the banks of the Fox River. She likes men and men like her. It runs in the family: her mother can seduce a man just by walking across a road. When they set their sights on a man, something magical happens. Alexander Caebeau drives a bucketloader for a construction company. He’s lonely, homesick, tired of cutting down trees and putting up ugly buildings.
