Jean is the debut author of Soccer Grannies: The South African Women Who Inspire the World. She is grateful that, going into this project, she didn’t understand how long it actually takes to write a book.
Her nonfiction writing has been published in the Boston Globe, Concord Monitor, Lexington Observer, PBS Next Avenue, WBUR Cognoscenti, and other sites.
Jean frequents the soccer field in Lexington, Massachusetts, where her team, the Lexpressas, has been playing for some twenty years. But who’s counting.
