J B Harris is happily married to her husband of 27 years, mom to three teenagers and two rescue dogs. She loves books, chocolate, wine, and traveling. A graduate of Emerson College’s MFA program, she went on to teach fiction at both the undergraduate and graduate levels before publishing her short fiction in such publications as Boston Literary Journal, The Beacon Street Review, Puckerbrush Review, and Grasslimb. She was recently named a finalist in both the 2022 Hal Prize in Fiction and the WOW Spring 22 Flash Fiction Contest. The Immigrant’s Wife is her debut novel and is based on a family history mystery that she promised her grandmother she would look into. Although The Immigrant’s Wife is very loosely based on what information she could find, it is completely fictional. Still, she regrets that neither her grandmother nor her father survived to read it. Jennifer is currently working on her second novel touted as Still Alice meets Olive Kitteridge.
