Gretchen Jeannette

Hello Friends! My name is Gretchen Jeannette. I live and work in Chester County, Pennsylvania, an area rich in Revolutionary War and Colonial American history. My enduring interest in 18th Century America began at a young age, inspired by the novels of Dale Van Every and Allan Eckert, whose timeless tales of adventure and romance capture the essence of early American lore.

Eager to read more such stories, to my disappointment I had trouble finding them on bookshelves. So I decided to write one of my own. Thus began a journey fueled by my passion to breathe life into history through believable characters, plots woven with adventure, romance and suspense and, of course, plenty of derring-do.Enjoy the ride…

Growing up in an area rich in Revolutionary War history, I developed a fascination with the legends, heroes and lifestyles of that era. I read every novel on the subject I could lay my hands on. I was fortunate in that my mother encouraged me to read as much as possible, with an eye toward someday writing my own stories. She, more than anyone, inspired me to follow my dream of becoming an author.
