Jeanne Grunert is an award-winning writer, marketing expert, and compassionate lifestyle advocate. Jeanne has been a professional writer for over 30 years. She won the Brockport Science Fiction and Fantasy writing competition at age 14 and studied fiction writing with Nebula winners Stephen Donaldson and Nancy Kress. She continued writing fiction while leading marketing teams at various agencies, publishers, and non-profit organizations in the New York City area.
In 2007, Jeanne quit her successful career as a marketing mogul and moved with husband, cat, and coffee maker to a 17-acre farm in the middle of rural Virginia. Here at Seven Oaks Farm, she has created a life instead of merely making a living. Jeanne writes and provides marketing and editorial direction for companies worldwide, writes regularly for regional magazines, and publishes fiction through Bricks & Brambles Press.
Jeanne calls herself a ‘compassionate lifestyle advocate’ and practices the teachings of St. Francis de Sales, a noted figure in the Catholic faith and the patron saint of writers. Her writing often incorporates Christian ideas and ideals, especially in the treatment of the differently-abled.
When she’s not writing, you can find Jeanne in the garden, tending to her orchard, vegetable garden, and flowers, or caring for her many rescued pets. Jeanne also enjoys walking, hiking, and cycling the many beautiful trails in the Blue Ridge Mountains.
