Jean Harris

Jean Harris was educated at Brooklyn College and the New York Public Libraries. She married Edward Harris in 1948, a surrealist painter and jazz impresario.  They pooled their talents (creativity, imagination, chutzpah) and produced their own radio programs for Mutual Broadcasting system.  With the birth of their first son in 1950, they left New York and show biz, moving to Walnut Creek, California where they have resided ever since.
In 1958, after birth of third son, Jean opened first of three womens' apparel shops over which she presided for forty years, traveling the world buying for the shops. She's been a writer since the age of seven, filling notebook after notebook with stories, poems, plays, essays, lectures, and stories.  Some have been published, most not. 
An inveterate optimist, Jean sees order where others see chaos, and is still awed by the wonder called life. You can reach her at
