Gretchen lives and works in Chester County, Pennsylvania, an area rich in Revolutionary War and Colonial American history. Her enduring interest in 18th Century America began at a young age, inspired by tales of adventure, romance, and local lore. After working as an editor for a publishing company, she decided to write a story of her own. So began a journey fueled by her passion for breathing life into history through believable characters, authentic historical details, and plots woven with adventure, romance, and suspense.

A longtime student of the American War of Independence, Gretchen has published three novels set during the revolutionary era: The Devil Take Tomorrow, This Day is Ours, and A Devil of a Time.

Hello Charles,

I do create my own maps using existing 18th Century maps, which I customize for my stories. I've had to learn a lot about graphics, though I would rather spend time doing research! I've been studying 18th Century America since the 5th grade. The War of Independence is a special passion of mine.

I shall check out your work as well!

Best wishes,

Gretchen(less)

This Day Is Ours by Gretchen Jeannette
"Outlander fans

will enjoy the hero who, though not as educated as Jamie Fraser, nevertheless has a similar charm, empathy, sense of honor and fierce spirit. Many interesting details, such as pouring whiskey into boots to prevent feet from freezing. " Read more of this review »
