About  Us:

We're Tom and Jen.  We met in high school and started a conversation which, years later, is ongoing.  

About Tom: Tom lives in New York with his partner and the world's most beloved orange tabby cat, Newky. He likes cold weather, anything with zombies in it and old cars. Never has he ever…been picked first for a team in Phys. Ed… used a selfie-stick… gotten Jen to watch an episode of South Park....

About Jen: Jen lives in Rhode Island with her husband, two kids and a cranky seven-toed cat named Sassy. She likes live theater, visiting any place she's never been before, and admits to a mild Twitter addiction. Never has she ever...won a game of Scrabble...turned down chocolate… been able to convince Tom to read a self-help book…


About Never Have I Ever Books:

We're  both avid readers and share book recommendations, strong opinions and recipes.  Tom is gay. Jen is straight. A couple of years ago we started writing the stories for LGBTQIA+ teens that we couldn't find.
