Jen Finelli is a world-traveling award-nominated scifi author who's ridden a motorcycle in a monsoon, discovered murals and poetry in underground urban caves, explored jungles and coral deserts, and hung out with everyone from dead babies to prostitutes to Senators. She longs for stories that speak truth about the human condition and shine on people often hidden in the shadows of modern fiction. She's a practicing MD, but when she grows up, she wants to be a superhero--so a portion of ALL writing proceeds goes to create a jungle clinic for those who can't afford medical care (projected opening date 2022!).
