It is her desire to share her love for writing with her readers.

She is a member of the Pacific Northwest Writers Association and the Oregon Christian Writers Group.
D.V Adams – suspense author and founder of Ta-Da Ministries has this to say:
“Mirich writes with the style and intelligence of Janet Evanovich and Patricia Cornwell. Her biting wit and allegorical underpinnings make her one of the brightest female writers to emerge in decades. Keep an eye on Mirich. She could very well be the new voice we have been waiting for!”
Mirich is a member of The Christian Medical and Dental Association’s Marriage Commission. Together with her physician husband, she teaches Physicians, Dentists, and their spouses at weekend Marriage Enrichment conferences. She also teaches at conferences for Missionary Doctors. Additionally, she mentors young women with one-on-one discipleship.
With her husband and family, she has served in short-term mission trips to Kenya at Kijabe Mission Station, the Fistula Hospital in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, a Women and Children’s hospital in Mali, and was a part of a team that served former prostitutes and street women in Managua, Nicaragua.
She received her B.S. in Education from Portland State University, and taught in the Milwaukie, Oregon public schools as well as in Pattaya Beach, Thailand during 1973.
A background in theater led to her writing two-act plays and performing in the Muskegon Civic Theater.
For several years her poems and short stories were published in Groundwaters, a quarterly magazine based in Loraine, Oregon and in their poetry anthology, Ripples On The Water. Groundwaters is now producing an anthology each year. She is a contributor in poetry as well as short story.
Jeanette-Marie has a passion for marriage and equipping couples to grow together with respect and love. She also enjoys quilting and is passing on the gift of using hands for others to her granddaughters. She uses her hands to knit, embroider, and make hollandaise sauce.
