Overview

Jeanne's childhood memories were only a reprieve, placed in her mind, as she lay unconscious on the kitchen floor. Once she felt her young son pounding on her chest, frantically calling her name, she awoke; terrified by the nightmare she had temporarily left. She must act; quietly and quickly before Charlie.... No, she couldn't think of that now. She must save the children.

Jeanne X's tale is a personal, heart wrenching, raw, funny, tragic, real life reenactment of a young couple's struggle to create a life together against a destructive force they had no idea how to control.

As you read the first book of this generational saga, you will be privy to the secrets, hidden behind a false façade of smiling faces, lies and deception, that are more common than anyone would like to admit.

Be warned! Once you learn the truth, you will never be able to go back to your life as usual.
Jeanne X can be found everywhere; if you know what you are looking for.

Editorial Reviews

Norma Huss
This book makes one think while following the life of an enabler. Jeanne X falls into a life she didn't expect. Her insights can help others in the same situation.
Dr. Sharon Otis
This is an exceptional book for the codependent or anyone who has addictions in their past or present. The reader will be able to relate to the main character and feel empowered by the journey to survival. A must read for a good story but especially for the enabler. Everyone has a story to tell and this one is an enjoyable read.

I found this book to be wonderfully crafted...organized in a creative manner with great combination of objective and subjective perspectives...
...couldn't put it down...can't wait for the sequels....wish all could read it who have lived or are living with addictive personalities...

Meet the Author

Jeanne was the last person who ever expected to write a book, let alone three. However she is an artist who found that her creativity was not confined to designing for the physical world. Life’s adversities and the knowledge that came with it compelled her to overcome her fears. She became inspired by her philosophical studies on humanity. She turned her observational talents inward to reveal generational secrets that once held her hostage and baffled outsiders.

She chose to write the Jeanne X book series as a living rendering of life, providing insight only hindsight can offer. Her unconventional writing style reflects her artistic voice and lures readers into her stories painting a picture of what is and, more importantly, what is not inside the minds of her characters.

For now, Jeanne X must remain anonymous to protect the innocent, namely her children, who are still minors at the time of this publication.
