Jennifer Sherman Roberts, author

Jennifer Roberts is a debut novelist, fierce library advocate, occasional knitter, and aspiring mead maker who lives in Southern Oregon, where the mountains are tall, the lakes crystal clear, and the beer hoppy.

Jennifer holds a BA from UC Berkeley, an MA from Villanova, and a PhD in early modern literature from the University of Minnesota, where she first became intrigued by the history of science and medicine.

Jennifer is a facilitator for Oregon Humanities, leading community conversations on the topic “Conspiracy Theories: Truth, Facts, and Tinfoil Hats.”

Jennifer’s debut novel, tentatively titled The Cunning Woman’s Book of Receipts, will be published in October of 2023 by Lake Union/Amazon Publishing. It features 17th-century recipes, witches, alchemy, and a wicked-smart crow.

Success! You're on the list.
