Jean Oram was raised listening to vinyl in an old school house in the middle of the Canadian prairie. After trekking through six countries and teaching hundreds of people how to ski, she decided it was time to get a ‘real’ career and thus attended university. She wrote for the university's paper as an entertainment reporter where she enjoyed free movies and tickets to hot concerts and events (well, you know... for a small city).
After graduating with distinction and a sociology degree, Jean quickly realized she had aimed herself straight for the fast-paced city life, a desk, nine-to-five, and high heels. Fearful for her sanity as well as the health of her wide feet, she slipped on flats and hid away in a high school library converting teenagers into readers, and enjoying her all-new favorite past time—buying thousands of books with other people’s money. Within years, she began writing her own novels. Champagne and Lemon Drops being her first published novel.
When not writing, Jean likes to camp, hike, read, ski (both downhill and cross-country), and then... do some more writing. She also blogs with other great writers at www.FromTheWriteAngle.com as well as on her site www.jeanoram.com and www.thehelpfulwriter.com.
She lives in Alberta, Canada with her husband, daughter, son, and like many other writers, two cats who fill her laptop fan with cat hair as well as a dog who always needs to go out, and two pet mice who are quite simply, cute.
