Connect with Jeannie
I grew up fascinated with stories of Western epic fantasy and Eastern martial arts adventures. When my best friend introduced me to romance novels in middle school, the stage was set. I started writing my first romance while I was working as a high school science teacher in South Central Los Angeles. After four years of trying to break into publishing with an Asian-set historical, I sold my manuscript for Butterfly Swords to Harlequin Mills & Boon.
As a technical consultant, backpacker and vacation junkie, I’ve travelled all over the United States as well as Europe, South Korea, Japan, China and Vietnam. I’m now happily settled in St. Louis with my wonderfully supportive husband, and I continue to journey to exotic locations in my stories.
