Jean Hegland was born in eastern Washington, and moved to northern California in the mid-eighties, where she has divided her time between raising her family, teaching, and writing. Jean's first novel, INTO THE FOREST, has been translated into over a dozen languages and is a frequent choice for campus- and community-wide reading programs. A film version starring Ellen Page and Evan Rachel Wood premiered at the Toronto Film Festival in 2015. DANS LA FORÊT, the 2017 French translation of INTO THE FOREST has been a best-seller in France. A graphic novel adaptation is in production. PUBLISHERS WEEKLY promises that Jean's second novel, WINDFALLS, is “a good prospect for reading groups.” Excerpts from her non-fiction work, THE LIFE WITHIN: CELEBRATION OF A PREGNANCY, have appeared in a junior high school science textbook, a college English textbook, and a guided journal for pregnant women. STILL TIME, Jean's most recent novel, celebrates the work of William Shakespeare while taking a hopeful look at the challenges of dementia. Jean is a frequent presenter at writers' conferences and has taught creative writing for many years, both in California and abroad. She lives in the Northern Californian woods where she is always at work on another book. Keep up with Jean at her website, www.jean-hegland.com.Read more Read less
