Re-reading her favorite childhood novel for a script-analysis class at USC, both rekindled Jeanne’s passion for Walter Farley material, and led inadvertently to her first Hollywood dream job—screenwriter on THE BLACK STALLION (1979). With this amazing experience broadening her interests from documentary to narrative filmmaking, Jeanne honed her skills by working as a script supervisor on numerous feature films while completing her first original screenplay, The Journey of Natty Gann (1985). She has been writing, producing and directing ever since, has taught graduate screenwriting at USC and online at National University and is currently working on several projects including a first novel based on one of her screenplays. She wrote and director the short films The Sire and Urban Cowgirl (2008), and the doucmentaries LA Backwater: The Venice Canals and Nowhere to Run. She was a script supervisor on Rock and Roll High School (1979), Pirahna (1978), The Fog (1980), Beastmaster (1982) and Vice Squad (1982). Some of Jeanne’s other films as a screenwriter include: White Fang (1991), Heidi – The Mini Series, T-Rex Back to the Cretaceous (1998), Running Free (1999), Rip Girls (2000) and The Young Black Stallion (2003).
