A native Oregonian, Jessie Anne and her husband of nearly 45 years have raised well over a dozen children. She has volunteered for everything from wrestling dinners to band trips. After the children were out of the home she facilitated several grief groups and oversees the care that foster children receive. She is actively involved in her religion and helps her congregation in many ways. She is the oldest of several sisters, making her bossy and opinionated. At least, she hopes so.
What inspires you to get out of bed each day?
I am fortunate to live in a beautiful place and have a wealth of people who love me.
What is your writing process?
Having raised several children (double digits) I find it easy to become sidetracked. My rule is that I have to sit in front of the keyboard for a couple of hours every day. Sometimes I write a lot, sometimes not so much. I give myself Sundays off and I often work in the wee hours of the morning.
