Jen Waite grew up on the coast of Maine. After graduating from Vassar College, she moved to New York City for ten years, where she first worked in finance and then pursued acting and modeling. She moved back to Maine in 2015, shortly after the birth of her daughter. She is the author of the international bestseller, A Beautiful, Terrible Thing, which details her discovery that her ex-husband was leading a double life. Since the memoir’s publication, Jen has worked with many people who have experienced similar betrayals. Her latest book, Survival Instincts, was a New York Post ‘best book of the week’ and is in stores now. She lives in Maine with her young daughter and is currently at work on her third book.
