Just Who is Jeff?

Jeff spent nearly 21 years working in a factory and it’s, ironically, how he got started writing.  He used to do most of his story brainstorming on the job. He says, “Factory work, especially production work, could be very monotonous. I spent many hours passing the time by jotting down phrases and ideas on scraps of paper- always being mindful not to be seen. Believe me, it would have been difficult to explain myself to my supervisor if I ever got caught!” 

Brown is from Iowa. He lives in a small house with his beautiful bride Vickie, a dog, and two cats.  He also has a daughter and two granddaughters.  When asked about her dad’s writing abilities, Jessica raves,

“He’s okay, I guess.” 

Lacy, his cat, has a different opinion… 

“He spends way too much time in front of the computer and not nearly enough time scooping out my litter box.”

True to form with the name of this website, Jeff wears a lot of hats, so to speak. He works with his sisters at Double Take Design Group, manages two short-term rentals in Belle Plaine, and helps his dad occasionally with his local lawn mowing business. When he’s not working, you might find him tinkering with his old car and truck, making home improvements, or cleaning up after the geriatric heard of animals wandering around his little house.

  1. Glad to see you back writing. I always enjoyed your “insights” into the joys of factory life.
