“Prince Garrett and the Land of Egos”
Hunterdon County, NJ
Jannie was inspired by Garrett, her precocious son, and his dog Zeus. Jannie would take walks with Garrett in Holland Township and tell Garrett stories of a Prince named Garrett and his faithful companion Zeus. These stories became favorites and she was encouraged to make them into books.
In addition to writing the Prince Garrett series, Jannie Pilgrim is the host of The Deal–a talk radio show and consulting service that provides career advice. The Deal was created out of a passion for helping people achieve personal career success.
Jannie’s never dreamt that her life experiences that include career coaching, work as an HR business partner, a recruiter, an inclusion solution consultant, and a trainer would lead her to write children’s book. Her biggest inspiration for this possibility is Garrett. She wants children all over the world to learn, to have fun and to understand the potential of their possibilities.
Currently, Jannie has four books that includes, The Beautiful Book of Possibilities, Breakfast for a Prince, How the Moth Turned Into a Butterfly, and the beloved, Prince Garrett’s Journal.
Jannie holds a Master of Science Human Resource degree and a postgraduate degree in Training and Development from the Milano Graduate School of The New School University. She also holds a Bachelor of Business Administration degree from Baruch College of the City University of New York.
