I started writing to quell the little voices in my head. I always had a story or dialog sifting through my brain. Surviving Life is a story close to my heart. I love the character, Carson, because I know what it’s like to be the “invisible girl.” Carson is strong, though she doesn’t see herself that way. As a mom “caution” is my middle name. I’m pretty much like Bet, Carson’s mom. Overprotective, micro-managing and I jump at my own shadow. My poor child was in a car seat until junior high. I see the world as one big safety hazard. When I’m not writing, I work as a Sonographer. I spend my days looking at cute babies. It’s pretty fun most of the time. It was a great career to work in while I finished college with a degree in photography. My goal was to get my Master’s degree in Bio-communication and become a Medical Illustrator. I was lucky enough to find a job right out of college as a Medical Photographer for a plaintiff’s law firm. Interesting work. (never did get the Master’s degree) Each case was different and I learned a lot about safety issues. Truck wrecks, plane crashes, malpractice, electrocution, you name it. As a photographer I saw some pretty awful stuff and worked in the field for seventeen years. No wonder I’m such a safety freak. I attended creative writing courses at Southern Methodist University and I’m a member of Romance Writers of America and the local chapter, Dallas Area Romance Authors. Surviving Life is one of four books I’ve finished. I hope you enjoy. You can find me on Facebook at Jeanne Skartsiaris, Author and Twitter, @jskartsiaris.

An adventure story for teens and their parents. This is a perfect mother-daughter bookclub read. It shows how strong our daughters are and how much we, as moms, love them.
