conferencepicJeanell Bolton volunteered to be simultaneously an elephant, a high-stepping horse, and a triangle player in her kindergarten end-of-term parade, and she hasn’t slowed down since. Her sense of drama was further enhanced by three years of Baylor Children’s Theater and performances in various school and civic theater productions. She is married, has three children, holds a Ph.D. in linguistics, taught English on the college level, and is published in poetry, short story, and journalism.

Jeanell always incorporates a dog as a meaningful part of the plot.
