About Jeanette Juryea
I love the fantasy of traveling in time. I’ll read any book, any genre, if it sweeps me into different times and different places. I’m fascinated by history — especially colonial America and Medieval Europe. My favorite authors are Diana Gabaldon and
Ken Follet. I love visiting historical sites and imagining what it might have been like for the people who lived there so long ago. I also imagine what it might be like if someone from our time suddenly got stuck in that time. And then I’ll write a story about it!
My stories are all either historical or they involve time travel. I like writing to middle grade and young adult audiences. Displaced is one story that I’m especially proud of. It’s a sort of Back to the Future adventure with some Wizard of Oz flavoring and a pinch of Karate Kid mixed in. It’s where the future meets the past in our present.
While I continue to build my fiction career, I am also President of “QuBComm” a corporate writing company that serves the employee benefits niche. I write marketing materials for big insurance companies and I write customized employee benefits materials for large corporations. I’m also a corporate editor, and after 15 years of doing that, I find that I make the same changes again and again when reviewing materials written by others. Here’s my Top 10 List for better business writing.
I like to share my corporate writing techniques and trade secrets. My workshops help others learn to do what I do — whether that’s other freelance writers or well-skilled and well-educated corporate managers, who are not writing professionals, but who get stuck writing in their jobs.
