Encinitas resident Jeanne Bellezzo has just released her new book Rantings of a Bitter Childless Woman, a witty, humorous, and unapologetic collection of essays from her perspective as a childless woman in a largely child-centric society. The genesis of Rantings was a funny email Jeanne sent to a friend about an experience she had at the grocery store. That email turned into a blog, which drew many like-minded fans across the country – including parents. “I’ve found that parents who raise their kids to be considerate and kind feel the same way I do about parents who don’t,” she said.

As a Chicago native, Jeanne feels that a combination of “witty but benign and often self-deprecating humor” typical of people from there has influenced her writing style. Rantings of a Bitter Childless Woman is sure to delight readers with and without children alike.
