Her Books: The Majek Family Mysteries
Jeanne’s most popular books are her mystery novels set among Long Island’s Gold Coast mansions. The Majek Family Mysteries – I Believe You (2016), I See You (2019), and the forthcoming I Hear You follow the exploits of an unusual family: wealthy, widowed corporate CEO, David Majek, his outlandish immigrant father Tibor, and his sons, one of whom is deaf. Her fiction has won high praise for its realistic characters, especially families with special needs children.
