-PLAIN JANE AUTHOR-
Barrie Levitt Knee
Plain Jane is my first novel. My mother, who is an avid reader, inspired me to write this book after sharing a dream I had about the books “secret”.
I think that especially for a first book, authors tend to write what they know. Like Jane, I grew up in the suburbs of Philadelphia, lived in NYC, worked for an Internet start-up (DoubleClick) and have twins.
I have always an entrepreneurial spirit. After becoming a mom, I patented and manufactured decorative covers for children’s bed rails (www.kover-ups.com). This product earned several awards including Best Product from iParenting Media.
I am married with twin daughters and live in New Jersey. My other interests include running, yoga and long walks with my dogs.
“If you can dream it, you can do it. Always remember that this whole thing started with a dream and a mouse.” (Walt Disney) For me, Plain Jane started with a dream and a laptop. I hope you enjoy it!
