Penny is good friends with Joanna
Penny is a pale redheaded woman in her late twenties who dresses like a Cambridge librarian. She looks like the kind of person who should be acting in a Jane Austen film adaptation.
Penny and Joanna met at Boston College. Both were Gifted and interested in old occult tomes. When they graduated, Joanna stayed in Newton, MA and Penny continued her schooling elsewhere. She recently earned her Ph.D. in Renaissance Literature from the Yale University of CT. She is currently living off a very nice trust fund as she decides what she is actually going to do with her degree.
She spends a lot of time hanging out in coffeehouses, going to museums, and visiting her friend at Owl’s Hollow.
