Spotlight On Writers
Jean M Beebe
- Where, do you hail from?
Currently living a stone’s throw from the Atlantic Ocean at Quincy Bay, MA, and never more than a couple of hours drive or so from the mountains… A transplanted New Yorker who arrived here via Ohio and Northern California where I sewed a few wild oats for a spell.
- What is the greatest thing about the place you call home?
Some mornings when the wind is at its best, when stepping out the door, I can smell the sea and watch the shore birds fly to their fishing grounds in the salt marsh down the road.
- What turns you on creatively?
Reading other writers’ work; my smart and funny friends, mood dependent music; being outdoors.
- What is your favorite word, and can you use it in a poetic sentence?
So many had tried to cross that dooryard, but her heart stayed stubbornly shut, blindly refusing the treasures those offerings were truly bringing.
- What is your pet peeve?
Duplicitous people who get away with it cause folks can’t always see what’s under the mask. Even at their peril. Also, people who chew loudly.
- What defines Jean M Beebe?
A romantic quester, ever active, always learning, seeing fellow travelers.
