Jennifer Cacicio is a storyteller.  

Sometimes they're true, so she writes about them for magazines and newspapers.  These might be about prison hooch or home tiki bars or how strippers and priests keep the non-alcoholic wine biz afloat.  Sometimes they're just about how her life briefly became Big Love or what TV bars tell us about ourselves.  When life is really good, they're just about ice cream

Other times she makes stuff up.  These are told as film & television scripts, short stories, or her novel that defies completion.  If you're doing your job right, these made-up stories are often truer than the true stuff.

You get the idea.
