Penny Huffman was born and raised in Minnesota before playing musical chairs with academic library jobs all over the country. She’s lived on the West Coast, on the East Coast, across the border in Canada, and down South, but the North always calls her back.
In college, Penny fell in with a bad crowd and worked at the University of Minnesota archives until graduation, whereupon she spent the immediate aftermath of the Financial Crisis™ working a series of (very) odd jobs. She got an MLIS in Vancouver in record time and specialized in business analysis. From there, she worked with modern-dance companies, historical Norwegian newspaper collections, and two major academic libraries teaching business research skills before ending up as a business librarian in St. Paul.
Penny has strong opinions about many classic geeky fandoms, and most of them are based on nothing more than Deep Personal Conviction. She believes Hufflepuff is the best house and will fight anyone who disagrees. Puns are the surest way to her heart.
