I’m Jennifer Kodros, the creative monster behind RETROSPECTACULAR. Born and raised in the Midwest with three brothers and a sister, the majority of my childhood was spent in a minivan. I was bald until I was 2, my first crush was Bret “The Hitman” Hart, my mother gave me a poem about my tone of voice when I was 15 and Buffy Summers will forever be my idol.
I love a good book, I love the St. Louis Cardinals, I love the Olympics and I love puzzles. I will forever be a fan of autumn, laughter, Shakespeare and sparkles. I hate bullies, goodbyes, pretentiousness, truffles. What can I say? I’m a cheap date. I’ve loved, I’ve lost and I’ve traveled but my adventure is hardly over.
I now call Los Angeles home. I’m taking improv classes at Groundlings, in the midst of writing a YA urban fantasy series (see About Books) and am determined to keep sarcasm alive despite the lack of tone in modern day communication.
RETROSPECTACULAR was created in attempt to answer the ridiculously over-asked question WHAT WOULD YOU TELL YOUR YOUNGER SELF? This is not a question that can be answered on the cuff or in a matter of a few words like most people seem to expect. With this blog, however, I have all the time in the world to dispense advice, thoughts and ponderings on what I’ve learned over the years…which is the type of time needed for a question of such gravity!
Thanks for checking out all the words I smashed together! Stay tuned for my unabashed thoughts on life…and remember to moisturize your elbows.
