I’m an author, poet, and creator of things imaginary, but I’m a reader across the board. My stories are full of diverse— LGBTQ+, heterosexual, multi-cultural, differently-abled, and of color— characters who go on dangerously awesome adventures with their family and friends. Space-time surely isn’t filled with only straight, Caucasian Humans so why should the stories only be? The same can be said of my Fantasy stories. The more diverse a story is, the better. A queer fairy? You bet. A nonbinary elemental spirit with social anxiety or a neuroatypical gnome? I call either of those a writing challenge.
These days I’ve officially retired from most things aside from writing, cover design, and helping with a small press I also publish with.
My official, author bio is below.
Born and raised in the foothills of the Appalachian mountains, Science Fiction and Fantasy author Jeanne G’Fellers’ early memories include watching the original Star Trek series with her father and reading the books her librarian mother brought home. Jeanne’s influences include author Anne McCaffrey, Ursula K. LeGuin, Octavia Butler, Isaac Asimov, and Frank Herbert.
Jeanne’s first series, The Taelach Sisters Series, won two Golden Crown Literary Awards for excellence in Speculative Fiction and was short-listed for a Lambda Literary Award.
