The D is for Dogged.
Jennifer D. Munro is a freelance editor who works directly with authors to improve their fiction and creative nonfiction manuscripts and help them achieve their writing and publishing goals (whether traditional or indie).
Jennifer is also a writer; she won First Place in the National Society of Newspaper Columnists blog contest (under 100k monthly visitors category). She is a two-time Pushcart Prize nominee and was a Top Ten Finalist in the Erma Bombeck Global Humor writing contest. Her essays and stories have been published in numerous publications, including Salon; Ninth Letter; Gulf Coast; Boulevard; Zyzzyva; Full Grown People; Brain, Child; Best American Erotica; Literary Mama; and anthologies like The Bigger the Better the Tighter the Sweater: 21 Funny Women on Beauty and Body Image. Whether fiction or nonfiction, J.D. offers a candid, often humorous exploration of sex and the sexes, with a quirky take on women’s issues such as body image, infertility, gender roles, motherhood, and marriage.
Her writing projects have been supported by various Washington and Oregon State organizations.
J.D. navigated from the back seat of a motorcycle on a 10,000-mile cross-country road trip, and she also navigated the foster care system as she became the twelfth mother but first “forever mom” to a challenging six-year-old boy. She brings her characteristic humor and irreverence to this role and to her writing about her unconventional family.
J.D.’s an enthusiastic but bumbling birdwatcher: she’s much better at spotting comma splices than titmice. She’s also an avid but middling knitter: when creating weird cowls, she regularly drops stitches and F-bombs. She volunteers at a wildlife rescue center, where she wrangles ducklings and spreadsheets. J.D. grew up in Hawaii as a fourth-generation islander but now lives in the Pacific Northwest.
