Jenny Lawson

Jenny Lawson (aka "the Bloggess) is the #1 New York Times’ best-selling author of Let's Pretend This Never Happened, Furiously Happy, You are Here and Broken (In the Best Possible Way). She is the proprietress of Nowhere Bookshop in San Antonio Texas.

Known for her sardonic wit and her hysterically skewed outlook on life, Jenny has made millions of people question their own sanity, as they found themselves admitting that they, too, often wondered why Jesus wasn't classified as a zombie, or laughed to the point of bladder failure when she accidentally forgot that she mailed herself a cobra. Her popular blog, at, averages millions of page views a month. She is considered to be one of the funniest women alive … by at least three people.
