About Jean Letai

Many of my favorite hours have been spent reading aloud to my three kids. Growing up, my mom always had a book in hand, so I figured creating a story must be about the most important thing anyone could do. Other things are important to me too, like cooking, snuggling with my Golden Retriever Charlie, and rooting for the cancer research my husband and best friend does for a living. Beyond reading and writing, I love food, travel, waterskiing and speed-skating. I also enjoy sky-diving and scuba-diving, parasailing and whitewater rafting, but I'm always happy to keep both feet on the floor beneath my writing desk.
