Californian native, Jeanne Carbone always loved to write: short stories, poetry and even a novella in high school. In her 20s and 30s she acted in film, plays and commercials writing much of her own dialog for stage performances.
 
After much study and rejection, Jeanne became published in magazines and newspapers, and winning awards. That led to a managing editor position for six neighborhood newspapers. She has written hundreds of articles covering local politics, schools, local events, editorials, investigative, health, animals, film, the arts, obituaries, and a monthly history column. She also photographed the people, places and events of the community for the articles.
 
Currently, she writes for magazines and newspapers as she works on a novel and a nonfiction book.

When Jeanne’s not writing, she loves to read, paint, attend film and live performances, visit art galleries and travel collecting adventures and photographs for future stories and paintings. She is passionate about the environment and animals’ welfare. Her favorite place to be is by water: ocean or lake or swimming pool. She lives in the San Francisco Bay Area with her English Cocker Spaniel and near her family.
