Jean L.S. Patrick
Award-winning Children's Author


Hi!  I'm the author of several books for young people, including The Girl Who Struck Out Babe Ruth -- the true story of left-handed pitcher, Jackie Mitchell.  

I've also written four books about the amazing history of Mount Rushmore.

Click the links below to explore my website.  I look forward to hearing from you!  

All best,

NEWS!!  If you're interested, I can come to your school for an entire week.

As an artist-in-residence, I can lead writing workshops each day in the classroom setting. (We have a lot of fun with nonfiction, primary sources, wordplay, and poetry!)

Applications for the 2016-17 year are due March 1, 2016.  (It's a super-easy application process.)
