Hello, I'm Jean Kinney, a writer based in southwest Ohio.

A graduate of Ohio State University's School of Journalism, I've spent the last three decades writing scores of newspaper and magazine articles, web content and other marketing materials, and have had two dozen non-fiction books for juveniles and young adults published.

Whether I'm promoting a certain brand of chili in a marketing email, or describing the experiences of 19th-century Mormon converts as they trudged on foot over prairies and mountains to reach their Utah destination, words are my medium of choice to convey an image, a feeling, or an idea.
