A native Californian transplanted to the Midwest, I was first published in short stories more than thirty years ago. My first book, a Silhouette YA titled "Playing House," was published in 1986, followed by six horror novels between 1987 and 1992. I have adapted one of my novels, "Wild Card," to a screenplay. Though out of print, these books are still available through Amazon.com under the name Jean Simon. 

After more than a decade of devoting myself to freelance work, and as a news correspondent for the Sioux City Journal, I've turned to the tough, time-consuming, frustrating and ultimately rewarding world of publishing. Shapato Publishing was founded in 2007 and is going strong.

In addition to all of this, I'm a member of the Arts on Grand Writers' Group, which meets twice a month in Spencer, Iowa. I live in Northwest Iowa with my husband, Grover Reiser. Grover and I share our home with a Kirby, a 22-lb Westie mix, Dakota, a Spitz, and French Fry, a 14-year-old calico cat, all of which were adopted, either from a shelter or from people who could no longer care for them.
