Jennifer Minicus

Jennifer Minicus lives in New Jersey with her husband and son.  A former French, Latin and mathematics teacher, Jennifer currently enjoys the responsibilities of a “domestic engineer”, particularly making jam and drinking coffee.  She has been evaluating children’s literature since 2001 and conducts summer book clubs for elementary school students.  Although her favorite place to read is the beach, she is more often seen with a book in school parking lots, doctors’ offices and little league baseball games.
