Jennifer Harmon is a poet who was born and raised in New Mexico, currently residing in Astoria, Queens. Inspired by her late mother, Patty, also a writer, Jennifer's goal is to share their story with the world. Her work is heavily influenced by personal relationships with family and friends as well as the atmosphere of the Southwest desert and the East Coast. Although she misses the hot enchiladas and the enchanting pastel pink and orange sunsets of The Land of Enchantment, she has formed a rich and rewarding life in New York City. Intertwining her mother's writings with her own, Jennifer's poetry readings provide a unique and very moving experience for her audience.
