About Me: 

Jean Weiss was the editor-in-chief of the natural lifestyle magazine Delicious Living for nearly six years. Before that she was the vice president of content for the San Francisco-based online company GearGoddess, the senior features editor for Outside magazine’s Women Outside, and the senior editor of Women’s Sports and Fitness. Jean now advises for several magazines, and her writing has appeared in numerous magazines and books. She’s taught her craft both in small workshops and as a guest speaker for university-level courses.

Jean launched her writing career more than 15 years ago while living in Jackson Hole, Wyoming, where in addition to working pretty much all the time, she took up rock climbing, Telemark and skate skiing, mountain biking, and fast hiking (really! she used to hike 18 miles in a day, carrying in a stove and serving hot tea with milk to her hiking buddies halfway in). She was the recipient of the Wyoming Council for the Humanities Fellowship and the Wyoming Arts Council Individual Artist Award, and she won first place special section awards four consecutive years from the Wyoming Press Association.

A love of adventure has taken Jean on trekking and climbing trips in Nepal, Colombia, Ecuador, Italy, New Zealand, and Iran. She’s enjoyed water sport trips to Bonaire, the British and U.S. Virgin Islands, and Australia. She’s also toured France, England, Scotland, and Wales and lived in Germany for a year while in high school. But one of her most exciting adventures was last winter in Vail, Colorado, learning the swoop of snowboarding.

Jean grew up in Seattle and now lives in Boulder, Colorado. Off and on (more off since having a child), she fronts (but did not name) the rock ’n’ roll band Snacky and the Inflatable Dates. She is currently at work on a novel called Leaving Babe.
