Jeanne Felfe (pronounced Gee Knee Fell Fee) started writing as a teen, but never seriously until about 2012. She would start writing with stark raving enthusiasm, and then mysteriously stop, sometimes for months or years. It wasn’t until she retired from her ATT Project Management job that she asked herself, “if not now, when?” She launched into the July 2013 Camp NaNoWriMo, the writer bug bite, and this time didn’t let go.

Since then, more than 30 of her short stories and essays have been published in a variety of anthologies. Her personal essay "Amidst the Weeds" was honored with the award by Fiftiness - you can read it here -

Many of her short stories ache to be novels and one, Born in the Sign (published in Elemental Tales), will be the basis for Ocean to Us, book two in the A Love Lost and Found Novel series.

Jeanne is currently working on two Women's Fiction novels, one inspired by her 2017 trip to Rwanda. Another inspired by her trip to Tanzania.

Jeanne is a Texan by birth, but has resided in the St. Louis area since 1986, currently in St. Charles, MO, with her fiancé, and two dogs who believe they are tiny humans. She likes to say, “If you ever meet someone named Felfe, we ARE related.”

I finally pulled it out of the files 10 years later and completed this second chances love story.

My current WIP is actually two completely unique novels, both with connections to Africa.

The first came to me in a flash of an image of a missing teenage boy. When I asked "what happened" the voice of a 14 year old female Somali refugee came in loud and clear. She began telling me her story and I was hooked. I'm about 1/3 of the way through writing "The Things We Do Not Speak Of".

The 2nd was inspired by a trip to Rwanda. While there, the main character's name came to me, but not her story. I had to wait until I'd be home for about 2 weeks before she revealed her story. It begins during the genocide that happened in Rwanda in 1994, but mostly happens in current day. The MC's experience during the genocide are what drives her actions and emotions in current day. I've only just begun this novel with the working title of "Beyond The Mist"(less)

I often have no idea where they come from, but when they appear, they are ready to tell their story - often loudly. And I must write them.(less)

Chat with Georgia Rose

Earlier in 2019, I won an audio copy of Georgia Rose’s Parallel Lies. I really had no idea what to expect, but set my phone to play and dove in. Within the first few pages, I’d become a fan of this author. She wove a complicated portrayal of a character who seems outwardly confident, but I could sense the damaged person just below the surface. I highly recommend Parallel Lies.


J: If you don’t wr...Lies.
