Wonderfully unique and exciting!
Janelle’s Time is a story of love, tragedy, time travel and much more. It is the start of what promises to be a fascinating series. The characters are rich and engaging. The storyline, unique and entertaining. You will not want to put this book down! Oh, and the wedding scene between Richard and Janelle—I think I fell in love with Logan! Just amazing! You will experience every emotional twist on the roller coaster between time with this book! Will Richard and Janelle ever get together? Ultimately, it is a story of love, pure and simple. I’m looking forward with great anticipation for Moria’s Time, book two in the series.

Writing ‘runs in the family.’ My mother is a multi-published non-fiction author, and my two brothers make a living writing, one as a newspaperman, the other as a copywriter. My sister edits her church newsletter.
My father was a school teacher/reading specialist/school principal when I was little. During story-time one night when I was four years old, I stopped him and asked how he said the same thing every time he read that story to me. That night, he started teaching me to read. It began a life-long love affair between books and me—for that, I am grateful.
In junior high, I wrote short stories to entertain classmates. In high school, one English assignment was to write my autobiography. In the teacher-specified chapter entitled ‘Future Plans,’ being a published writer topped the list.
After a college professor told me I ‘couldn’t write my way out of a paper bag,’ I stopped writing for many years. Then, in the late 1970s, I wrote an article for “World Radio News” (San Diego, CA) about our amateur radio club providing communications for a March of Dimes Walkathon.
In early 2002, between jobs and wanting to write, I sought a third-shift position and used the ‘free time’ to write what became ‘Janelle’s Time.’ When it was complete, I shelved it. In 2009, the WIP came off the shelf. By August 2011, it was ready—at last—for submission.
In 2009, I started a Twitter account, @Writers_Cafe. I feel as if I’ve earned a degree in ‘book publishing’ since then! You can learn so much from 15,000 followers.
I penned an article about @RileyCarney, a Colorado teen, and very prolific YA fantasy author, who heads her own non-profit literacy project. Never officially published, countless people have seen it, thanks to Twitter retweets and some carefully chosen email inboxes.
On New Year’s Day, 2010, I went ‘live’ with my blog. It has evolved into a combination of chronicling my writing journey and hopefully helpful posts on publishing industry topics.
Janelle’s Time is Book 1 of my TIME Series. Book 2, ‘Moria’s Time’ was my NaNoWriMo project for 2011. I hope to have it ready for submission in late 2012 or early 2013. The remaining books are: ‘Adelle’s Time’ (2012 NaNoWriMo project), ‘Logan’s Time (a WIP),’ and ‘Clarissa’s Time’ (2013 NaNoWriMo project).
I’m very excited about the release of ‘Janelle’s Time.’ It’s the culmination of a life-long dream—and is only the beginning of my retirement career.
My husband, Pete, and I have been married over forty-four years—no children. We lived in New England all our lives until 1992, when we moved to southwest Florida.
