Jeannie Zokan, author of The Existence of Pity and award-winning Courage Without Grace, grew up in Colombia, South America as the daughter of missionaries. Her love of books led her to study Library Science at Baylor University. She moved to Washington, DC to attend The George Washington University, and much like Josie in Courage Without Grace, she became a palm reader there. DC’s cold weather finally did her in, so when the chance came to head south, she took her motorcycle to Florida’s Gulf Coast to write stories for the local newspaper. She now lives ten minutes from the beach with her husband, a dog, and a cat. When she’s not writing or editing, she’s reading, playing tennis, visiting their two grown daughters, or practicing yoga in their garage gym.
