About Jean Baxter

Jean Baxter started writing with her friends in middle school, passing the same story back and forth, each one adding to it. Getting a short story published in a magazine a little later gave her encouragement to try something more challenging.


She wrote a book. That got put on hold when she found herself single, again, with two kids to support. She became a nurse and white-knuckled it through those teen years, fraught with angst and drama. Convinced young adult was the area she wanted to concentrate on, she dug out the first manuscript and updated it. She joined a writer's group where she was encouraged to send it out. Salvageable is her debut novel and a sequel is in the works.


Jean has four grandchildren, (more fodder for her stories), a couple of cats and a yard full of flowers. She loves to travel, walk, bike and golf. She’s a member of Wisconsin Writers Association and Green Bay Area Writers Guild.
