Jenny Sue Gamboa

Fall 2019 Session

Jenny Sue Gamboa writes young adult, sci-fi, and fantasy. She got her start in the first grade, where she composed such riveting tales as “At the Bus Stop” and “I’m Going to New York.” She has worked in photography, marketing, and gymnastic-mom-chauffeuring. She is fluent in Spanish and is married to her Mexican lover. They live in Salt Lake with their three children, three chickens, and one parakeet. Her main claim to fame is her ability to touch her nose with her tongue (which apparently only 10% of the general population can do.) Visit her at
