Jennifer McMahon

Författaren bakom hyllade Vinterfolket!

Jennifer McMahon har redan en trogen läsarskara i Sverige men översatt till svenska blev hon inte förrän 2015 med boken Vinterfolket. Hon har tidigare skrivit bland andra Promise Not to Tell, The Island of Lost Girls, Don’t Breathe A Word och The One I Left Behind. 


Innan Jennifer blev författare på heltid jobbade hon som husmålare, gårdsarbetare, påskhare, pizzabud och rådgivare för vuxna och barn med psykiska sjukdomar. Hon bor på en gård i Vermont tillsammans med sin partner och deras dotter.  


Så  här skriver Jennifer på sin hemsida:
I was born in 1968 and grew up in my grandmother’s house in suburban Connecticut, where I was convinced a ghost named Virgil lived in the attic. I wrote my first short story in third grade. I graduated with a BA from Goddard College in 1991 and then studied poetry for a year in the MFA in Writing Program at Vermont College. A poem turned into a story, which turned into a novel, and I decided to take some time to think about whether I wanted to write poetry or fiction. After bouncing around the country, I wound up back in Vermont, living in a cabin with no electricity, running water, or phone with my partner, Drea, while we built our own house. Over the years, I have been a house painter, farm worker, paste-up artist, Easter Bunny, pizza delivery person, homeless shelter staff member, and counselor for adults and kids with mental illness — I quit my last real job in 2000 to work on writing full time. In 2004, I gave birth to our daughter, Zella. These days, we’re living in an old Victorian in Montpelier, Vermont. Some neighbors think it looks like the Addams family house, which brings me immense pleasure.

    Today's research involved learning how to butcher a pig. I even watched a gruesome video. Very glad I'm not a pig farmer.

    Though it's true that I do enjoy gifts, I'm kind of ready for my cat to stop bringing home dead things each morning.
