Jeanette Christine Deason was born, the second in a family of four daughters, in the county seat of Seneca, Ohio. Tiffin is a college town, a town with two colleges yet with less than twenty thousand inhabitants. Jenny now lives in West Bloomfield, Michigan, with the love of her life, Charles. For most of the last three decades she has claimed Michigan as her home state.
Tiffin, Ohio, however, was a great place to grow up. It is a town filled with decent hard-working folks and many fond memories were created there. Graduating from Tiffin Columbian High School in 1970, Jenny then graduated from the University of Toledo, Ohio, in 1972. Upon entering graduate school at the University of Toledo, she went directly into a PhD psychology program, focusing on child development research. She then transferred to the University of Louisville to work on a master’s degree in neuropsychopharmacology. In 1975 she began work for the old Bell system as an engineer trainee and has been working in the network organization of the Baby Bells and spin-off cellular companies for the last twenty-five years. This included almost a year of work in Brussels, Belgium during the late 1990s.
Jenny is a mother of two now-grown children. She has successfully raised a daughter, Noel, who is a physical therapist in Cincinnati, Ohio, and a son, Derrick Tichenor, who works in the automotive industry in the Southeast Michigan area.
Jenny hopes to be a writer when she grows up and is a published poet. Jenny also enjoys writing screenplays, illustrates her poetry with cloud angel watercolors, and has written an album’s worth of new Christmas carols. She simply loves the celebration of Christmas and hopes that this book assists in getting you in the spirit of the season.
An avid cook, she has started a Gluten Free, Historic foods website www.partywitholdfood.com and the newest adventure, the start of the publishing house that produced this second edition of New Shoes for Elizabeth, MouseKeeper Christmas and many more titles to come, www.crazyredheadpublishing.com.
As part of her nearly four decades in the telecommunications industry, she has three patents (7,949,347, 8,055,270, and 8,391,891) and many certifications including a LEAN Six Sigma Black Belt and a PMP.
