“Jean Wolf Logan’s new novel Billy Love’s Wolfpack is a triumph in storytelling. Jean weaves a canvas so brilliant that the reader is transported back in time to the Golden Age of Hollywood and the horrors of Nazi Germany. Her female characters are strong, independent women who helped shape our world. This historical drama is a delight to read and an absolute page-turner. So, grab a warm cup of tea or a nice glass of wine, clear your mind and escape with Billy Love’s Wolfpack.”  Terrie Scott – Mason, Ohio

Jean Wolf Logan grew up in a small town in Iowa, where she experienced a childhood filled with adventures. She made a yearly trek to Okoboji, where she stayed in a cottage with her grandparents, and cavorted with some of her “Wolf” cousins. Her parents, grandparents, and cousins’ personalities and quirks influenced some of the characters in the novel.

The story line in the book was prompted by the author’s research into her German roots. She discovered many generations of Wolfs lived in Darmstadt, prior to her great-great grandfather immigrating to the United States. 

Jean holds a Master of Arts in Nursing from the University of Iowa, and a Ph.D. In Higher Education from Iowa State University. She spent over 30 years as a nurse educator at Grand View University, where she used storytelling to teach the art of nursing practice. Billy Love’s Wolfpack is her first novel. A sequel, Billy Love’s Forsaken Children, is planned.
