She is herself the author of the award-winning Otherwise Normal People: Inside the Thorny World of Competitive Rose Gardeners. Right now, she is working on a family history that she's calling Gladys, Who Never Married and a memoir of women and lingerie, tentatively titled Underneath It All. Jessie C. Grearson Jessie Grearson (Luke Daniels profile, page 42) is a freelance writer and writing teacher living in Falmouth, Maine. She has co-authored two books and several essays in inter-cultural subjects and reviews art, books, and audiobooks for a variety of publications.
