About Jennifer Sheffield

Hey everyone! I'm a tech professional and freelancer. My favorite Nintendo titles will forever include the Animal Crossing series (I'm also known as easy-breezy grandma), the Paper Mario series, Super Mario World, and anything Yoshi! When I'm not writing about gaming, I'm trying my hand at nonfiction essays and fiction projects.
