I’m Jennifer Kodros, the creative monster behind RETROSPECTACULAR. Born and raised 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 is my ultimate girl crush.
I love a good book, I love the St. Louis Cardinals, I love the Olympics and I love thunderstorms. I will forever be a fan of autumn, Shakespeare, puzzles, sarcasm and sparkles. I hate bullies, goodbyes, pretentiousness and truffles. I’ve loved, I’ve lost, I’ve laughed and I’ve traveled – but my adventure has only begun.
A midwest girl at heart, Los Angeles has been my home since 2010. I am currently working with the filmmakers of Brothers at War on the sequel, which puts an honest frame around the men and women serving our country. I am making my way through the Groundlings training school and am in the midst of writing a YA urban fantasy series (see About Books) as well as a rom-com feature with my writing partner. Work hard, play hard.
RETROSPECTACULAR was created in attempt to answer the ridiculously over-asked question WHAT WOULD YOU TELL YOUR YOUNGER SELF? This can’t 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. Heaven knows I never shut up so – prepare the horses!
Thanks for checking out all the words I smashed together! Sign up for emails and stay tuned for my unabashed thoughts on life. Remember your manners…and to moisturize your elbows.
