Jennifer Trethewey is the pen name for Jennifer Rupp. Her Highlanders of Balforss series features brawny Scots, sweeping romance, and non-stop adventure laced with a liberal dose of humor.

As an actor-turned-writer, she has moved her performances from the stage to the page and invites you to enjoy the drama of the Scottish Highlands in her Highlanders of Balforss series: Tying the Scot, Betting the Scot, Forgetting the Scot, and Saving the Scot. She lives in Wisconsin with her husband, Richard Chudnow, where they operate ComedySportz Milwaukee, a family friendly improv comedy show located in 30 cities and 3 countries.
