Jen Merrill is a Chicago-based writer and blogger. After years of jamming her twice-exceptional son into various school settings that didn’t quite fit, she’s now a homeschooling mom who couldn’t be happier.

She is the author of If This is a Gift, Can I Send It Back?: Surviving in the Land of the Gifted and Twice-Exceptional; her second book, on the needs of parents as they raise gifted kids, will be released summer 2014.
