J. Zimmerman was born in north-west rural Britain, a couple of valleys away from William Wordsworth's home. She wrote her first poem at the age of nine in order to avoid strenuous exercise, and she continues in this practice. Her poetry has been published in North America, Europe, and Australia. She co-founded and edits Poetry at Ariadne's Web (http://www.baymoon.com/~ariadne). She has worked as a surveyor at archeological digs in Britain and Greece, a solid-state physicist, dishwasher, computer-science teacher, software quality assessor, radio host and engineer, falconry apprentice, web designer, software designer, and an English tutor.
