Jean Ardell - Memoir: The Art and Craft of Telling the Truth of Our Lives

Jean Ardell
Memoir: The Art and Craft of
Telling the Truth of Our Lives

Jean grew up in New York City, the daughter of a mother who loved books and a father who loved baseball. She has worked in Orange County, California, as a freelance writer since 1988, covering a range of subjects including domestic violence, politics, the environment, travel, and baseball.

Her work has appeared in numerous publications, including the Los Angeles Times, Orange County Register, Orange Coast, where she was a contributing writer, and many others.   Her profile of author Dean Koontz earned the Orange County Press Club's 1995 Best Profile award. Her first book, Breaking into Baseball: Women and the National Pastime appeared on the Los Angeles Times best-sellers list, and continues to be used as a text in college and university sports history courses.

Jean has led memoir writing workshops at such venues as the Newport Beach Public Library, the University of California Extension at Irvine, and local churches, as well as privately. She graduated with honors in English from the University of California at Irvine and holds a master's degree from the University of Southern California Master of Professional Writing program. She lives with her husband Dan, who played first base for the Los Angeles Angels, in Corona Del Mar.
