Welcome to My Website

Jeanie_Ransom_medWhether you landed here by choice or by chance, I’m glad you stopped by! I’m an award-winning children’s author and former elementary counselor who loves to visit schools and write books. When I’m not on the road, I can be found writing in my “girl cave,” on the front porch, or at Starbucks. I live in St. Louis, Missouri with my art-director husband and a biscuit-loving office “assistant.”

I’ve worn many writing hats over the years, and I bring that range of experience to classrooms and conferences. Although I primarily pen picture books, the writing process is universal. I’ve worked with students from kindergarten through high school, as well as teachers and fellow writers. My presentations are engaging and informative, relatable and relevant. I’m still booking author visits for the 2014-2015 school year, and would love to hear from you. Just click on the “Contact” button above.

I’m represented by Lori Kilkelly at Rodeen Literary Management, and my next book comes out in February 2015. Follow me on Facebook for updates!
