Child of the Storm (editor)
After Chris O’Rourke’s family was unexpectedly forced to flee their East Coast home and lavish lifestyle for the shores of the Pacific Ocean, the rebellious young man discovered surfing, and his life changed forever. In 1975, at the tender age of 16, he became the highest-ranking competitive surfer in the mainland United States. Determined to become a world champion, the surfing prodigy was poised to make history in the sport he loved—only to be challenged by his deadliest opponent ever. “Jeanne Bellezzo did an absolutely incredible editing job of my book Child Of The Storm. While the story was always there, Jeanne was the one who really made it come to life and I can’t thank her enough. Anyone out there searching for a top-of-the-line professional editor, well, look no further. It doesn’t get any better than her.” —Kirk Lee Aeder
Dance Until It Rains (editor)
Becky Guinn lost her hands and feet—but that didn’t stop this passionate artist from painting and teaching. Bill Porter has all of his body parts, but cerebral palsy makes even the simplest tasks difficult. Nevertheless, he became the top salesman in his company with a daily routine so grueling that it would cause all but the most persistent to wither. These are just two of the 17 true inspiring stories of ordinary people who overcame their challenges and achieved extraordinary results through faith and perseverance. “Our ‘Dance Until It Rains’ book had multiple authors, with multiple writing styles. We needed a powerful editor who could pull it all together and create a seamless experience for the reader. Jeanne far exceeded our expectations and is one of the most professional editors we’ve ever worked with. She stuck to the schedule and even delivered the final product early. Can’t recommend her enough.” — Vic Johnson, Amazon Best Selling Author

Rantings of a Bitter Childless Woman: The Parenting Book’s Evil Twin (author)
Kids sucking on restaurant salt shakers and parents nonchalantly putting them back on the table. Pregnant women driving alone in the carpool lane. Overtly sexy Halloween costumes for first-graders. Random strangers making unsolicited judgements about her reproductive status. These are just a handful of the situations Jeanne Bellezzo comically explores in Rantings of a Bitter Childless Woman. Written from the witty, unapologetic perspective of a childless (and far from bitter) woman in a fiercely child-centric society, this collection of entertaining essays will have readers with and without children laughing, nodding, cringing or throwing a tantrum. “I kept it by my night stand and thought it would be nice to have a little humor before I drift off to sleep and to my surprise I could not put it down. Funny, clever and kind, yes Jeanne loves children and sees the humor in her rants. Would make a great gift to new moms and dads and just about anyone. Looking forward to a follow up book on this subject. Oh , and FYI, I am a mother of 3 and grandmother of 7.” —Goodreads.com review
