Jennifer Shun was born in Detroit, Michigan to two artists – her mother, a sculptor; her father, an architect. She spent her Midwestern childhood amidst the right-brained, touring the odd mix of art shows and construction sites. She pledges she could read a blueprint before a chapter book.

She scratched out her first story at the age of six about a koala bear named Stan. The illustrated work didn’t win any awards, but it kick-started a lifetime passion for anything written.

Jennifer attended Oakland University receiving an undergraduate degree in journalism.

After launching a PR/marketing company in 1997, she decided corporate writing wasn’t enough fuel for the soul. Shaking things up, she migrated to southern California and launched a product blog, werd.com.

She lives with her husband, two daughters and black cat named Hallow. Guaranteed she’s writing something with a #2 Ticonderoga as you read this, while a batch of cookies bake in the oven.
