Jeanelle is a fantasy and suspense writer. When she was ten years old she knew she would stop at nothing to achieve her dream to be a writer. Her favorite authors, Tamora Pierce and Patricia C. Wrede, created engaging characters and immersive worlds. Jeanelle carries on that tradition with her YA fantasy stories and dark suspense novels.
Growing up with Cerebral Palsy, Jeanelle wrote to escape from the physical challenges she faced. YA Fantasy will always be her first love. Creating new worlds let her live vicariously through her characters. As she has matured so has her writing. Now she enjoys the darker side of suspense along with forays into adult fantasy as well.
While earning her Creative Writing for Entertainment BFA at Full Sail University, Jeanelle earned two course directors awards for Visual Thinking and Writing and Literary Genre II: Mystery, Horror, and suspense. She was also published in Linguistic Erosion, Yesteryear Fiction, and Scrawl Brawl.
As a recent graduate, Jeanelle plans to finish her YA Dystopian novel about a young mage who must save her land from a corrupt government and her action/suspense script featuring an ex-con who must deal with the consequences of her past.
