Between living the scholarship-laden life of an academic bum, she did seasonal work in national parks. Jeri met her future husband in Yellowstone and they later married in Las Vegas.

Her forthcoming novel, Lost Girl Road, is a ghost story set in the woods of northwest Montana. She currently lives in North Carolina with her husband and their pets
