Jean Baxter lives in northeastern Wisconsin and has no desire to “move where it’s warmer”. She loves the snow—shoveling, not so much.
As a single mom, she white-knuckled it through the adolescent years of her two kids. She found it to be a time fraught with angst and drama and credits those experiences for her love of writing for that age group. Throw in a thirty-year career as a nurse and her background is ripe with real life scenarios.
Along with her obsession for writing and reading, she adores her grandchildren (more fodder for her stories), her two cats (she is not the crazy cat lady—yet), gardening, walking, traveling, and a wonderful group of friends. She is a member of Green Bay Area Writer’s Guild and Wisconsin Writer’s Association.
