Live Oak author, Jeanette Cooper grew up in Florida. Her work as a volunteer on the Frank Laubach Reading Program, "Each One Teach One", motivated her to become an elementary school teacher. She earned her Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education and her Master's Degree in Elementary Reading Instruction at the University of Central Florida.
Jeanette began her writing career following retirement after teaching in elementary school for twenty-six years. Her first published book, Wall of Color, (now published in e-book with the new title: Affair of the Heart) was inspired by a young biracial girl in her fifth grade class who hungered for acceptance in a society where her biracialism suspended her between two races and left her feeling an absence of connectivity to either race. Then forthcoming books just seemed to flow from Jeanette's fingertips through her keyboard and she now has fourteen novels and one poetry book to her writing credit.
Jeanette writes about drama and human conflict. Her books are about the lives of people, their hopes, dreams and passions. They are about survival, about overcoming life problems common to folk everywhere, and about picking up the puzzle pieces of life by putting them back together in satisfying resolutions. There is something for every reader!
