Thanks for stopping by my website. Click on the News link for up-to-date information about me, my work, meeting me in person, and my activities.

I am a freelance consultant, trainer, and writer. After more than thirty  years working in libraries, I "took my pension" and now channel my love of libraries, books, and reading into teaching for Texas Woman's University, writing, consulting, and conducting face-to-face and online workshops. It's a lot of fun being able to pick and choose projects, some for money and some for love or the community good.

With the publication of Hummingbirds: Facts and Folklore from the Americas I cross over to the other side of the book shelves. My first book for young people was released in February by Charlesbridge and it is beautifully illustrated by my friend and co-author Adrienne Yorinks.

I've worked with a lot of public libraries in Texas and around the country. I've also worked with the Texas Book Festival and helped Laura Bush by organizing author events like the White House Easter Egg Roll. I get a lot of joy from writing about books and writing to help librarians run their libraries "better."

I guess I would describe myself as a "joiner." I'm a member of SCBWI, the American Library Association, the Texas Library Association, Sisters in Crime, and a number of other organizations. I enjoy meeting people and getting to know them!

I live in Pflugerville, TX, a small community just north of Austin and south of Round Rock. We like to say that we live between a "rock and a weird place." I share my life with my husband, Jim, two schipperke dogs, and two cats, including a "reformed feral."

I've also started birding, thanks to all the time I spent looking at hummingbirds for the book. As part of that experience I've started a blog, Bird Brainz, that I hope you'll check out.

Please feel free to contact me if you have questions about my work, my books, or anything else! Click on the link or email me at jeanette at jeanettelarson dot com.
