Authors Cohort Header

By Eliza Drummond

Jeanne Anderson (M.Sc. Sp. Ed.) continues to write young adult novels for her eighteen grandchildren. 

She enjoys trying to fit together all the pieces of the puzzle that are the different characters her grandkids want to play: a dinosaur trainer and an evil villain;  Princess Tilly, who may end up getting a whole book filled with her misaligned attempts to help others, and friendly whales. 

Jeanne has also begun a memoir about her struggles with her health, which has made her look at things in a different way, and to reconsider what is important in her life. She reports that things that before seemed day to day are now amazing and wonderful.
