Jeanie Loiacono represents over sixty authors. Her forte is mystery, romance, thrillers, historical/military/southern fiction, and all quality fiction/nonfiction. Her passion is to see her authors succeed.
Jeanie has been involved with the literary arts all her life. Starting at a young age, her sister, Barbara, taught her to read and write before she started school. It was never enough to be read to as a child. She discovered the magic of escaping through the written word and never looked back; had to learn to read so she could go to “the land far, far away” on her own. With a sister passionate about literature, a father who was Aid de Camp for two governors, empowering her with the skills to type and compose letters and meaningful essays and a mother who taught her to speak German, she naturally excelled in language arts. So to be a part of the literary arts world is a dream come true.
“There is nothing more rewarding than to hold one of my author’s books and know I helped bring it to fruition. I am so blessed and privileged to be able to work with some of the most talented writers in the world.
“What use is living without giving? It is all about making memories.
“I had a home day care for fifteen years and read many children's books. One I made sure we read a lot was Big Bird on Sesame Street. Big Bird bought a handful of flowers which he intended to decorate his nest with, but on his way home he encountered one friend after another who needed cheering up or who he just wanted to make smile. When he got to his place and turned around there were colorful flowers in every hand on the street, and that was better than seeing them in his nest. When I look back at the end of my road, I want to see happy faces; the faces of my authors, family, friends and those I encountered along the way that were touched by my smile or simple love. To me that is what it is all about; to look back and know what you did made a difference. “Can’t” really isn’t in my vocabulary.”
“Be persistent. Editors change; tastes change; editorial markets change. Too many beginning writers give up too easily.” — John Jakes, Author of the North and South Trilogy
