Dr Jennifer Wilson is an IA columnist who has had two careers: as an academic and scholar and as a psychotherapist. She has a PhD and now works a little at both her careers.
She's published short stories in several anthologies, academic papers and book chapters, frequently on the topic of human rights, a central interest of hers. Her interests and writing are wide-ranging, including cultural analysis such as the paper on Tony Soprano that appears on her blog.
She reads crime fiction for fun, literary fiction and critical theory when she needs to work her brain hard. She's hardly ever without music, from Leonard Cohen to rock to country to classical.
Leonard’s Australian concert was her highest point of 2013, and Jennifer has been described as an L.Cohen tragic. This does not disturb her, though some say it should.
Jennifer has written for On Line Opinion, Suite 101 and ABC’s The Drum Unleashed, among other publications. In her spare time, she writes fiction – some of which you’ll find on her blog – and some of which is published in anthologies.
Jennifer lives on the edge of a world heritage listed rainforest with isolated beaches and loves kayaking, swimming and bush walking. The above photo is taken in the backyard.
When she gets cabin fever and can afford it, she heads for other countries. If she could, she'd travel most of the time. A nomadic life has always been her dream.
