As a child Jean Ingellis enjoyed simple rhyming so much that she would walk to the library by herself throughout elementary school to read the Mother Goose nursery rhymes book. Although she spent her younger years in the Mid Atlantic region, she has spent most of her adult life in the New England area raising her five children. After her children were grown Jean taught herself how to read music and play the acoustic guitar. Something she had always wanted to do since she couldn't sing very well and just never seemed to find time to do when raising her children. She is still learning and plays a little better than she can sing. She has enjoyed reading stories to children over the years. Her grandchild being her favorite to read to. One day Jean decided to create her own story and character as a keepsake for her grandson. Jean loves visiting the ocean beaches and that is probably where her inspiration came from. That end result is Waneta Walrus and her blue tu-tu. The first in a series of Waneta Walrus adventures.
