Jennifer Wilson's No Place for Sheep is an eclectic blog that covers politics, society, satire, fiction and fun stuff. Jennifer sometimes share it with friends who are informed on a great variety of topics, so there’s an interesting collection of views and writing.
Jennifer has had two careers, as an academic and scholar and as a psychotherapist. She has a PhD, and now works at a little of both my 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 need 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.
She's written for On Line Opinion, Suite 101 and ABC’s Drum Unleashed. In her spare time, she writes fiction, some of which you’ll find on the 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 back yard.
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.
