Meet the Members: Jeanette Hargreaves

“I write to help me find my own sanity!”

-Jeanette Hargreaves

A member of the Writers’ League for one year, Jeanette lives in Austin, Texas.

Scribe: In what genre(s) do you write?

Jeanette Hargreaves: Mommy Blogging and Self-Help Curriculum.

Scribe: What author would you most like to have a drink with, and what’s the first question you would ask them?

JH: I would ask the real Saint Paul, “Tell me what happened on the road to Damascus, or is that just a legend?”

Scribe: If you were stranded on a deserted island, what book would you want to have with you to keep you sane?

JH: Any of my own writing – I write to help me find my own sanity!

Scribe: What have you learned from your association with the Writers’ League?

JH: Attending classes and interacting with members has helped me to learn some publishing lingo and enhance my professionalism.

Scribe: Where do you see your writing taking you (or you taking it) in the future?

JH: I think I will write a book about my life coaching work, helping moms who lose their temper. I’d love to go on a book tour where I meet moms and make a difference in their lives.

Scribe: Here at the Writers’ League, we love sharing book recommendations. What’s one Texas-related book that has come out within the past year that you couldn’t put down?

JH: Hands down: Braving the Wilderness: The Quest for True Belonging and the Courage to Stand Alone by Brené Brown. What’s not to love about these chapter titles? “People Are Hard to Hate Close Up. Move In,” and “Speak Truth to Bullshit. Be Civil.” Yes, ma’am!

Scribe: Is there anything else about you that you would like to share with the world? An opportunity for blatant self-promotion!

JH: The moms I work with are strong women who don’t normally ask for help and they are stuck in patterns of anger and shame. (I’ve been there too, and it stinks.) If you know someone like that, please send them to my website. I have an online business, so I can coach anyone in the world. The interwebs are cool like that!

Thanks,  Jeanette!
