Jean Marie Pierson
Jean Marie Pierson is a Manhattanite, who moved to the Big Apple from a small farming town on the east end of Long Island called Southold. Both of which she proudly calls home.
After getting a degree in Film and Video Production from Penn State University she moved into St. Maryâ€™s Residence on 72nd Street in New York City and landed a job in the contracts department at a large book publishing company. Not the most natural choice for a film major but she needed a job in order to stay with the nuns. With her dating and film life on hold for one year, Jean Marie was able to carve out a writing discipline that she still holds onto to this day. She originally wrote No Good Girls as a screenplay and later turned it into a novel with the guidance of four fellow writers at a bar on Houston Street.
Jean Marie, now a director in contracts, negotiates some of the biggest book deals in publishing while working on her own novels in her off-hours. When sheâ€™s not shoe shopping or eating too much sushi, she teaches creative writing at Hunter College. She lives on the Upper East Side with no nuns, no sink in her bathroom and her no good friends right around the corner. Halleluiah.
