Besides reading, Jean quilts, lies on the beach, brunches with friends, practices her sarcasm and eats french fries.  Jean has been at Wild Rumpus for seventeen years and from the very first day when she met Norman the Pot-Bellied Pig to yesterday when a rat ran up her sleeve, it's been quite the experience. Never a dull moment!

Four of Jean's favorite books:
  • The Nature of Jade by Deb Caletti
  • The Most Magnificent Thing by Ashley Spires
  • The Language of Flowers by Vanessa Diffenbaugh
  • Behind the Bedroom Wall by Laura E. Williams
