Jen Giacalone is a former rock star, a graphic artist, a parent, a baker, amateur plumber and a timelord. She toured much of the east coast of the U.S. as a musician in her 20s, spent her 30s in corporate boardrooms of fortune 500 companies as a graphic artist, and in her 40s, became a published author. Her script "VERITY'S GAME", a queer take on the Mr. and Mrs. Smith trope, is the winner in the Action/Adventure genre in this year's Table Read My Screenplay contest and led to her being chosen as a member of ISA's Top 25 Screenwriters to Watch in 2022 and signing a shopping agreement. Her drama "TOCCATA AND FUGUE" is a top ten finalist in Stage 32's Drama Contest. She's the author of the novel "Loud Pipes Save Lives," published by Carnation Books, about a damaged detective pursuing a gang of vigilante lady bikers, and the forthcoming "Gin Fizz at the Outer Rim," a queer romcom about superheroes in rural Georgia. She writes whenever she can and when she can't, she's thinking about writing. Her lifelong relationship with the arts means they often weave themselves into her work, and living in New York City nurtured a love of diversity and the desire to see a range of cultures and identities represented. Her mission statement is simple: art is for everyone.
