Jen DeSantis is from a small suburb just outside of Philadelphia. She’s a mom of two kids and two fur-kids. When she’s not freelance writing or working on her novel, she can be found in the dojo, beating the crap out of a heavy bag. She’s a black belt in karate and enjoys sharing her love of martial arts with young children, especially young women in need of the emotional support and confidence karate can bring them. She also battles depression on a daily basis. As writing is her favorite drug of choice, she started this blog as an attempt to understand the healing process.
