Jeanne Koré Salvato grew up in Canandaigua, New York, in the heart of the beautiful Finger Lakes region of western New York State.
Her mother suggested she note down the important events in Treasure Island when she was a young reader, and that began a career in writing and reading literature. Earning her Bachelor of Arts in English from Cornell University, her MA in English at the University of Arizona, she continued graduate studies, mastering Old English to read Beowulf in the original. Highly trained in student-centered learning and curriculum development for Writing Across the Curriculum in the States, she’s also taught at the American University of Paris and the American School of Paris. Extensive editing experience with both novelists and scholars alike aids her in marking her papers! A writer herself, she loves all things Irish and Italian.
