About Jean

Screen Shot 2015-11-07 at 5.25.10 PMHello! Thanks for stopping by.

Since 2009, Jean has published 3 children’s books with Random House, and is currently working on a picture book for Schiffer Publishing with brilliant illustrator Jia Min Lim.

Born and raised in Tennessee, Jean ran away to college in Florida, but soon decided that she much preferred 4 seasons and foothills over humidity and sand. After graduation, she returned home to surround herself with books.

She’s addicted to British dramas, especially Call the Midwife and Downton Abbey, which planted the seed for her current YA project.

An honorary Canadian despite being only about 1/32 French Canadian (or something), she bleeds Maple syrup and longs for a pet moose. Her mom is a genealogist, heartbroken that Jean can’t seem to keep the ancestors straight.

Jean is a parent to a very naughty Australian Cattle Dog (Blue Heeler) named Tazzie, who has her very own page.
