Jeannie Burt was raised on a farm in Oregon. There were six, counting her, in her high school graduating class. She was related to half of them, a situation that fostered neither romance, nor privacy or adventure, but it did tend to keep her in line.Her career in business and human resources allowed her to escape the confines of small-town life; she lived in San Francisco, New York and Milano where she became passionate about art. She adores Paris and visits often.Jeannie has had two non-fiction books published: “Lymphedema: A Breast Cancer Patient’s Guide to Prevention and Healing” and “What You Need to Know to Show Your Dog”. In the last years, she has put the writing of non fiction aside to eat, drink, and sleep her first love: fiction.“When Patty Went Away” will be her first published novel. Two more of Jeannie’s novels are in the hands of agents.
Jeannie lives in Portland, Oregon with her husband.
