Jeannine believes her life can be described as this: mother of Dan, wife of Lou, and writer of many books. She came from a family that all read books and just naturally loved books from the time her sister taught her to read before she started school. As a small child, living on a farm in Wisconsin, her older sister, Shirley, amused not only herself but Jeannine and brother Don by reading to them and then acting out the stories. She recalls not only acting out Dickens’ Pickwick Papers, but also westerns by Zane Grey. As you can probably tell, there was no television. Those times are some of Jeannine’s fondest memories. She just got into the habit of reading and also making up stories even after her sister went to high school and the family moved to Chicago. Make-believe stories factored into her life for ever after. Always interested in family history and genealogy, Jeannine thought a fictionalized story of her ancestors might be interesting and worked on A New Day for some time in between working on her other novels. Since this is her thirteenth book for Wings ePress, you can find other biographies with her various books that will tell other things if you’re interested.
