Hi, I’m Jennifer
Thanks for visiting!
My mission: to help people live happier lives, while reducing the amount of clutter in our heads, homes, and communities.
My 10-Second Bio
Author of two books on collaborative divorced family relationships and one on creativity.
(The co-author of my first book, Carol Marine, is my kids’ stepmom. We went from enemies to close friends while writing.)
I’ve helped warring families end court battles and become parenting allies.
My 30-min. guest appearance on Dr. Phil as an author was seen in 40 countries.
I actually like public speaking, except for ten minutes right before it happens.
Air Force/Embassy brat.
Grew up in Madrid, Manila and all over the U.S., with a long stint in Austin.
Live in Eugene, Oregon.
My husband and I are empty-nesters. Between the two of us, we have five(!) daughters and one granddaughter.
LOVE WHERE YOU LIVE

TV SERIES 1
Currently working on a historical fiction series with a collaborator in L.A. Script and proposal ready for pitching.
TV SERIES 2
A half-hour dramedy based on my experiences as a stepmother, with a dash of magic. Outline only.
Things I Love
Cognitive therapy. Our unconscious beliefs are often hilariously wrong. This is incredibly powerful! If you can change reality from the inside out, what might actually be possible?
Dogs. I wish I had ten instead of just two.
Books galore. Music. Visual Data. We’re living in the golden age of TV.
The irony that taking good care of what you already have creates a feeling of abundance. You have enough!
