| Jennie Kermode, author of 'The Orpheus Industry', is a thirty one year old intersexed writer known for her film reviews and columns as well as for her short stories. First published at fifteen, she studied historical linguistics at university and spent ten years caring for her partner, a leukaemia patient, before becoming seriously ill herself with mixed connective tissue disease. She has run her own fashion design company, directed a zombie movie, and toured with burlesque theatre. She remains active in the alternative music scene. Variously described as “a talentless scrounger”, “the sharpest writer since the fountain pen” and “the kind of man she warned me of,” she still aims to write about what she knows. “I might have fallen in love with Jennie if we'd been the right genders.” wrote one critic. “Of course, I'd probably be terrified of her in person.”|
Jennie lives in Glasgow, Scotland, with her partners Donald and Stuart.
