Meet the Author

"Whether in Europe or the states I always looked forward to lying awake & listening to my cousin Jean tell stories." -Julie Sorbet, Nevada
(Authors note: The only cousin I ever made cry...I still feel guilty about that. Go Donny Osmond!)

"My sister Jean is witty, loving, smart, practical, creative, quirky and a really good cook. The 'Cookie Queen'."-Mary Sorbet, Georgia
(Authors note: She is living with my husband and I now, so take this with a grain of salt, two sticks of butter, a cup of sugar, a cup of flour and two eggs, lightly beaten!)

"A book written by my aunt who quit Belgium for USA after I was born, I hope there is no link"-Vincent Vanpee, Belgium
(Authors note: Those rosy, cherubic cheeks were a definite sign of trouble to come...)

"DO NOT SELL THIS BOOK ILLEGALLY"-Mark Funk, Virginia
(Authors note: He is rather obviously vying for the role of enforcer just in case I ever need one. I hope he doesn't think it would be a paying gig...)

"A book bringing back fun memories of early childhood when family visited."-Dale DeMarcy Touchet, Louisiana
(Authors note: Dale must be one of the few cousins I didn't irritate by talking to invisible friends and trying to hog all the crawfish)

"Written by a dear friend who really knows how to brighten your day. This is a must."-Susan Rannestad Frantzen, Norway
(Authors note: She loves me because she sees me once every 30 years and lives far, far away! Evidently I am pretty cool in small doses.)

"10 years ago, was mistaken for her 32 year old niece, by her niece's husband."-David Etter, Michigan
(Author's note: David is my new best friend!)

"My Aunt Jean is wise, comical, tough as nails, the first to laugh at herself and the last to laugh at someone else. An indomitable spirit to be sure!"-Teri Smith Kupchunos, Georgia
(Authors note: Paid for (with cookies and chicken wings) by the committee to promote this book!)

Jean Sorbet Scott lives with her husband and best friend, John, just west of Atlanta, Georgia. Their road stretches forever ahead, begging to be traveled.

    This may be the only book I've ever read that I didn't start at

    This may be the only book I've ever read that I didn't start at the begining and read through to the end. I started in the middle because I wanted to re-read bits I'd seen before on Jean's blog (think woman in labor looking up at 6 flights of stairs) and I've been going backwards and forwards ever since. It's been a real joy to read, even the ones that make me cry.

    Natually, being the author I think this book is wonderful. More

    Natually, being the author I think this book is wonderful. More importantly, other people seem to as well. We all go through good times and bad. Our children allow us to soar to the highest of highs and sink to the depths of the lowest of lows. Our success is not measured in money or fame, but by our ability to keep returning to earth with a smile, even if battered, and continue on to the next adventure.
