Meet Jeanette

I love all things Irish, the language, a good cup of tea, soda bread, Guiness stew, smoked salmon, banoffee pie, green hills, happy cows, chedder cheese,… and all things Southern, sweet iced tea, southern hospitality, everything written by authors Louise Penny and Johanna Trollope, winter sunsets, driving through hot desert nights with the windows open, coffee and conversation with good friends, Katherine Hepburn movies, dessert, intimate gatherings and bright breezy days.

I live in Southern California where I learned humility by teaching school to remarkably well-behaved 6th graders, and in County Kerry, Ireland where I take long walks, listen to traditional music, sigh over gray skies, Skype with my three adorable grandchildren and, when the muse strikes, write another novel.
