Jenna Van Valen

Jenna is a professional photographer and part time writer, just re-finding her voice after years of silence. She had a great idea for a blog,, and had planned on filling the posts with dating misadventures, and instead is focusing on accepting her flaws, falling in love with herself, and maybe someday falling in love with another human. Henry Rollins, her “celebrity freebie” once told her he loved her - she has the photo of them embracing to prove it. (Sadly, the blog is not THEIR love story. Sigh.) She lives with her two pugs, and her rotund kitty in Portland, Oregon.
