First Time First Blood - Jenna Chapman

Jenna Chapman is Co-Director of CHIRP's Annual Record Fair and erstwhile Creative Writing 101 student. Born in the UK, she grew up in the western Chicago suburbs, went to college in Minnesota, and came back to the city proper for grad school. When she was seven, she memorized the spelling of antidisestablishmentarianism from the dictionary to impress her friends, and has steadily been building an improved understanding of social dynamics ever since. Published works include numerous editions of origami-ed M*A*S*H notes, a series of escalatingly PG-13 jump rope rhymes, and three chapters of a very elaborate Twin Peaks/X-Files/Stargate SG-1 crossover fan fiction. She now lives in Andersonville with her roommate, two laptops, and an ever-expanding Sci-Fi/Fantasy novel collection.
