My name is Jen Russ. My students call me Miz Russ, which is why my Twitter handle is @mizrus.
By day, I’m a zany high school English teacher who loves my students and my subject. Hopefully, that’s all I need to be a good teacher, because I’m sorely lacking in the Organization, Chalkboard Handwriting, and General Togetherness departments.
By night, I’m an improv comedian, a volunteer, a flight school dispatcher, and a road-tripper. I live in a 215-year-old house in Sussex County, NJ with my fabulous husband and our five pets: three cats and two dogs. Check out my Twitter account for many, many animal pictures.
I love to write. If you see me in public looking spacey, you can bet I’m writing a story in my head. If you want to hear it, say hi! If you want to see it in print, please contact my most fabulous agent, Cheryl Pientka of Jill Grinberg Literary Management.
Me. Bonus points if you know where I am in fantasy-land, and superamazingbonuspoints if you know where I am in the real world.
