Jen Wheeler

Jen harbored a childhood dream of writing about food after discovering her grandmother's old issues of Gourmet and becoming a devotee herself, but never quite thought it possible. Then she came on board at Chowhound, where she got to write articles about everything from the ritual of eating blue crabs and the emotional resonance of scrapple to the origins of odd food names and the history of figgy pudding. She was eventually promoted to managing editor and constantly pinched herself. Now, she's pursuing freelance writing while devoting more time to fiction on the side, and hopes to publish her first novel someday soon. You can also find her work on CNET and Greatist.
