Jeanne DuBois

Jeanne grew up in New Jersey, graduated from the University of Michigan in English and History, and immediately moved to the Florida Keys where she waited tables, drove the bookmobile, memorized the land use regulations, and fished. When her son was six, she headed north, earned an M.Ed. at the University of Florida, and thereafter taught elementary school.

She has written essays, reports, lesson plans, grant applications, and classroom assessments with relative ease. Embedding a puzzle into the plot of a short story or novel has been a much harder task. In the words of Nelson Mandela: “It always seems impossible until it’s done.”
