Jennifer P Tanabe (jptanabe)

Joined 3 years ago from Red Hook, NY




Also follow me on:

I'm an academic type - got my B.S. in Biological Sciences and Ph.D. in Psychology from the University of Edinburgh in Scotland. Yes, I was born a Brit! I was also a postdoctoral fellow at the University of Minnesota's Institute of Child Development for a year. Since then I've had a varied career and currently live in the Mid Hudson Valley of New York State with my husband and cats.

I'm still interested in Psychology, added a spiritual/parapsychological focus with my involvement in spiritual activities. I'm married to a Japanese guy, and we have a daughter who's currently in college. They're both very musical and artistic, hopefully some of that rubs off on me!

So my interests include the paranormal, indigenous peoples and cultures (especially Native Americans and Celts), mythical creatures (I'm a dragon in the Chinese zodiac and I love Loch Ness and Nessie, so I just keep going from there!) music, movies, food, and tea (I'm British so of course!) and coffee. Hopefully I'll get to write about all the topics that relate to all my interests, and maybe some new ones too.

I'm also a published author - check out my page on You can also check out what I've written so far on my Amazon author page.
And my next book (after the one I'm currently working on) will be a novel!
