Jennifer Oliver O’Connell caught the writing bug at 15. While still in high school, she was accepted into the Urban Writers Program of Youth Communications, publisher of  New Expression newspaper. Her piece “Teens Juggle Careers and School” was published in the September 1982 edition, and was entered into a nationwide contest for a journalism scholarship. Mrs. O’Connell went on to become the College/Careers Editor for the paper, incorporating her organizational and compositional touches to the February 1983 College/Careers Issue of  New Expression, as well as writing and producing the piece “If I Were Seventeen Again…”

Mrs. O’Connell attended Columbia College Chicago, and within that program, she wrote a number of short stories, including “The Foot,” which was published in the fiction anthology Hairtrigger 9 & 10.
