Jeanette Watts


Jeanette Watts only lived in Pittsburgh for four years, but in her heart, she will always be a Pittsburgher. She missed the city so much after her move to Ohio, she had to write a love story about it.

She has written television commercials, marketing newspapers, stage melodramas, four screenplays, three novels, and a textbook on waltzing. When she isn’t writing, she teaches social ballroom dances, refinishes various parts of her house, and sews historical costumes and dance costumes for her Cancan troupe.

Smashwords Interview

What motivated you to become an indie author?
After spending five years looking for an agent, I came to the conclusion that agents are crazy! Every time an agent read my book, they said they loved my book, they'd love to represent me - as long as I changed a few things. And then, when I'd rewrite the book to suit their request, they didn't like the book anymore... everyone told me to just publish on Kindle. I wish I would have listened to that advice a year earlier than I did.
How has Smashwords contributed to your success?
I hope it will! I've only just uploaded my book.
