Writing

About Jean the writer...

 Jean has been writing ever since she first had access to materials to do so.  She entertained herself by writing poems on thin strips of colored paper at age seven.  In other words, writing has been an ongoing passion.

 She currently writes nonfiction and poetry. She is a member of Poetry Society of Colorado where her poems have received many awards. Her poetry has appeared in Quill and Parchment, Colorado Life magazine, Poetry Society of Colorado’s Poet’s Showcase: Winning Poems 2018-19, and numerous anthologies.

 

Coming soon her new book...

In Search of the Owl

This memoir was written during the first year after the death of her father, Levi L. Mohler.  He had been a pioneer in the fields of wildlife management and ecology who respected nature and understood the importance of the complex ecosystem upon which all living things depend. So it was no surprise that Jean turned to nature for solace during her time of grief. As she made her way from season to season her thought-provoking encounters with nature became key elements in her search for the owl, a metaphor for her search for clues to the mystery of life and death. The graphite and ink illustrations are hers.
