Jolene Sladekova


Jolene Sladekova is a web-footed desert-rat, born in Washington State but raised in Tucson. 

Reading and writing both came easy to Sladekova at an early age, and though she had visions of being a professional writer, her path in life went in other directions until recently. Sladekova is just a beginner on this new passageway of authorship she finds herself walking and sometimes running on, but she hopes that she will acquire a following of those who love her writings and look forward to the next publication with eager expectancy. May your interest in the intense and unforgettable journey of Jana and Nathan Behringer grow with anticipatory excitement as you check out her website while awaiting the time you can meet face-to-face at the festival, whether it be rekindling old friendships or creating new ones.
