  • Featured member: Jean Daigneau, Author and Past Regional Advisor Jean Daigneau sold two picture books within a few weeks of submitting them and thought she was on her way to being a children's author. When neither book was published, she realized that she had a lot to learn about writing children's books and found her way to the Northern Ohio SCBWI. Since then, she has been published in Highlights, My Friend, Fun for Kidz, and Clubhouse magazines. She has sold educational testing material, craft ideas, and greeting card text and has been published both in the Children's Writers' and Illustrators' Market and The Guide to Literary Agents. Her most recent sales have been three pieces to Highlights magazine – one for their Gallant Kids feature and two for their What a Pro Knows feature. She continues to work on two pieces for Highlights, picture books, poetry, and non-fiction. Jean is a past Regional Advisor for the Northern Ohio SCBWI and currently serves on their board.
