Here Jeanne tell us
a little about herself...
If you are already one of my valued
readers, you may know that I was born on the High Plains of Kansas beside
the tracks of the Santa Fe Trail and my first memories are of dust storms
and tumbleweeds. The core of my work is a panorama of the Southwest though
I am presently working on the fourth volume about the Highland Clearances,
a sequence that began with THE ISLAND HARP.
Most of these books have been out of print
but many are now available through an Author’s Guild Back in Print
arrangement. These include many books published under the pen names of
Jeanne Crecy, Jeanne Foster, Kristian Michaels and Deirdre Rowan, and most
of my young adult titles –which some of you probably read as teen-agers.
Since they’re historicals, they don’t go out of date. My books have won
four Western Writers of America Spur Awards, and I hold the Levi Strauss
Saddleman Award for lifetime achievement in Western literature. For the
past twenty years, I’ve lived in a historic adobe ranch house in the
Chiricahua Mountains of Southeastern Arizona.
Here are a list of book by Jeanne...
Young Adult (YA), Southwestern
(SW), Arizona Saga (AZ), "In the Michener tradition" (M),
Scotland Clearances (CL), Romance West (R), Suspense
