Jen Simon writes about motherhood, postpartum depression, sex, relationships, pop culture, and feminism. Her essays have been featured in five anthologies. Jen has been published on Cosmopolitan, Yahoo, Redbook, The Huffington Post, Babble, Scary Mommy, Ms., and more than two dozen other websites. While she writes about serious topics, Jen’s also a pretty funny lady. Her tweets and Facebook statuses have been included in the funniest round-ups from Today Parents, The Huffington Post, Babble, and Romper.
Jen writes during nap time – she stays home with her toddler and sleep-challenged six year old.
Although she was not born a redhead, she has been fixing that mistake for nearly two decades. After growing up in Kansas City, she lived in New York City and Brooklyn for 13 years before giving in to the suburbs of New Jersey. The memoir she wrote about drinking, dancing and dating while in her 20s remains unpublished. It’s probably for the best.
