About the Author

Jennifer Hillman-Magnuson is a writer and mother of five. She has lived in India and Abu Dhabi, and now resides full-time with her family in Oregon. She has written for Nickelodeon, Brain, Child magazine, and other print and online publications.


"In this thoughtful, often hilarious book, Magnuson crosses parenting cultures with her husband and five children, gaining insight into herself, and ultimately finding her tribe. A powerful debut, Magnuson has the gift of conversational prose laced with a quick wit."
--Marcelle Soviero, Editor in Chief Brain, Child: The Magazine for Thinking Mothers

"Jennifer Hillman-Magnuson places readers in India through evocative details and scenes, and introduces us to characters who breathe. We journey with her as she navigates mothering five children in this vastly different culture, and it is an entertaining, illuminating and enjoyable ride."
--Erin Byrne, award-winning writer of travel, fiction, poetry and film

"Peanut Butter and Naan is equal parts hilarious, moving and inspiring. Jennifer Hillman Magnuson's journey through India with her brood makes me want to hop on a plane with my kids and live life to the fullest!"
--Deva Dalporto,

"Honest, hilarious, heart-warming. Jennifer Hillman-Magnuson avoids a universal set of motherhood do's and don'ts and tells instead a refreshing tale of how far she was willing to go - literally across the globe - to teach her children, and ultimately herself, what it is to live a meaningful life."
--Glenys Loewen-Thomas, contributor to Cup of Comfort book series
