About Jeanne Felfe (St. Charles, Missouri Author)
Jeanne grew up a Corpus Christi beach bunny—and is still very much a Texan at heart. She long ago transplanted to the Midwest, where she insists on growing tropical plants to feel at home. She hauls them into the house for the winter, making the place look a bit like Jumanji. Although she now calls St. Charles, Missouri home, she’s lived across Texas, Chicago, and Florissant, Missouri.
Bridge to Us: A Love Lost and Found Novel, is a Jeanne’s debut novel. It began life as a short story for a Writer’s Digest contest in 2003, then in 2013 the characters from that short story insisted she complete their journey of the heart. The result is an emotional love story between two broken souls. It recently won the Rocky Mountain Cover Contest.
Jeanne serves on the board of Saturday Writers, a 100+ member writers guild. She co-authored a book on Y2K in 1999 and has had numerous short stories published in various anthologies.
