Jean Mckie-Sutton rose through the ranks of the insurance industry before heeding her own heart and pursuing her passion for writing. She grew up listening to the stories that elders recounted about the women in her family, and it is from these dominant, yet richly flawed matriarchs that she draws inspiration for her writing.
In addition to her debut novel, “The Fruits Of Our Sins,” Jean has published two short stories, “Stella’s Silent World,” and “When The Bough Breaks.” She is also a featured author in “Sister To Sister: Black Women Speak To Young Black Girls.”
She plans to release a collection of short stories later this year, and a poetry chapbook early 2013.
Jean lives in a suburb of Philadelphia with her husband and three children.
