Jennifer Purdie is a freelance writer and recently completed a novel titled The New Year's Eve Project chronicling her dating experiences in the land of silicones and size 2s, aka Southern California. She performs stand-up comedy and prefers to write humorous, self-deprecating pieces than researched, political articles that pay a lot more. She doesn't understand it either. In her free time, she participates in marathons and triathlons yet her favorite thing to eat is dessert. She doesn't understand that either.
