Jen Teschendorf lives in the Twin Cities with her husband, daughter, and their beloved dog, Rudy. She attended the University of Montana with the aspirations of learning how to make movies, but left with the artistry of telling a great story. 

After self publishing her debut children’s book, Say What Little Duck? Jen received an offer from a non-profit press to print a second edition of the title utilizing a dyslexic-inclusive font. Say What Little Duck? is available for purchase in stores and online.

When Jen was asked to write the story of The Free Book Buggie she didn’t think twice. She’s a passionate advocate for children’s literacy and talented storyteller making her the perfect candidate to write this tale. 

Jen typically can be found writing children’s books, editing photos, or making short movies – but only after her little duck goes to sleep!
