Jeanette started telling stories at age three, when the family kittens went missing and she wove a wild tale about what happened to them. Turned out they were hiding. Though visually impaired and totally colorblind since birth, she has always been attracted to creativity and the arts. In the mid-90s, she finally found an outlet for her imagination and began writing for publication. Since then, she has written twelve books (both fiction and nonfiction), developed a passion for equipping other writers, and seen God use life’s darkest seasons to offer light through speaking and contributed to devotionals and story collections.
Jeanette has a passion for encouraging and inspiring others through her experiences as a writer, creative, unexpected traveler, and visually impaired woman who has learned to see God’s faithfulness in the most trying seasons. If you are looking for a speaker or teacher for an upcoming event, Jeanette would love to hear from you.
