Jeannine Kellogg loves a grand adventure and a great story. She has traveled to fifteen countries and her adventures include hiking in New Zealand sea-kayaking above the Arctic Circle and wading through rice fields in Thailand. Yet she is certain that great inspiration is found not in distant adventures but in the often-overlooked details of everyday life. Jeannine's career has spanned a variety of industries and roles but has mostly involved analyzing lots of numbers and telling stories in numbers. Her first novel The Tukor's Journey began in a wind storm as Jeannine and her nephews dove deep into sheltered waters seeking sparkling blue stones only visible when sunlight broke through the clouds. Jeannine built a story around that diving expedition and it grew into The Tukor's Journey adventure series. Jeannine enjoys nothing more than encouraging kids to seize life's wonderful adventures and take the lead in their own powerful journey.
