For award-winning sweet and inspirational romance author Jean C. Gordon, writing is a natural extension of her love of reading. From that day in first grade when she realized t-h-e was the word “the,” she’s been reading everything she can put her hands on. A former professional financial planner and financial writer, Jean is as at home writing retirement- and investment-planning advice as she is writing romance novels, but finds novels a lot more fun.
She and her college-sweetheart husband tried the city life in Los Angeles, but quickly returned home to their native small-town Upstate New York. They share a 175-year-old farmhouse on 12 acres just south of Albany, with their daughter and son-in-law, two grandchildren, and a menagerie of pets. Their son lives nearby. While Jean creates stories, her family grows organic fruits and vegetables and tends the livestock de jour.
A founding member of the Capital Region Romance Writers (Albany, NY), Jean currently serves as membership director She’s also a member of RWA’s Faith, Hope and Love Chapter and Novelists, Inc.
Jean is currently looking forward to the release of her Christmas novella Caro's Wish, Book 2 in the multi-author Small-Town Christmas Wishes series and at work on a second book for the Sweet Promise Press No Brides Club series.
