Her most recent book, I Believe You, is a mystery exploring the meaning of forgiveness and family. All of her works are available on; some are also available at Barnes and Noble and

Jeanne has always led a double life, penning stories morning and night while maintaining a full-time job as a marketing director, consultant, and professional corporate writer. She holds an M.A. in Writing from Queens College, City University of New York, and an M.S. in Direct and Internet Marketing from New York University.

When Jeanne isn’t writing, you can find her working in her garden, hiking the trails near her rural Virginia home, tending to her many pets, cooking, or sewing.
