Jean feels she’s very much a Californian although she was born in Ohio. California has been home for a good many years. Life changed drastically for her when she was six and her father died incredibly from an errant golf ball. A dishonest insurance agent forced her sheltered mother to seek work, and she became a teacher. Her hours required Jean to be alone in the house in the afternoon, and since she was forbidden to leave till her mother got home, she became an avid reader. The local library supplied most of the books and she developed early her two of main interests, Jane Austen and King Arthur.
Reading is still one of her favorite activities, although she sometimes has to push it aside to make room for her enduring love of writing. Her journalism degree was used infrequently until recently. Marriage and raising two children pleasantly got in the way. After twenty years of being a real estate broker and with the kids raised she finally could devote her time to writing, her first love.
Jean's enchantment with the lore and legends of Druids and, therefore, delving into their history led to fascinating research that inspired her popular Garland of Druids Series for Cerridwen Press. She's now enjoying writing stories filled with magic and romance for her Songs of the Mages Series, also for Cerridwen Press.
Few things in her life have been so satisfying, especially when all her books have a happy ending. Wonderful to make happen. It only gets more interesting when a secondary character demands his very own book. Who would want to deny him? Not Jean!
Jason Townsend determines he must sever his ties with his twin Jono and find his own path in life. His mage's inner voice demands he go to Ireland, and there he meets Aislinn, a Quaker contemptuous of his First World War heroism and his reputation as a ladies' man. She thinks he's the antithesis of any man she could ever want. Now he must not only find his essential self, but is determined to convince Aislinn he's not the detestable Lothario she thinks him.
His quest becomes complicated when a villain is determined to destroy Aislinn and the young boy she's protecting. Jason must assert his powers as a mage to save her and prove his love.
