About the Author


Hi! I'm Janet...


I grew up in southern California and studied French against my 6th-grade teacher's advice that I'd never use it.  

I’m glad I stuck with my preference, as I’ve now lived in France for almost twenty years. First in the Alps, followed by several significant years in the center of Paris.

Currently, my husband and I live in St. Hippolyte du Fort in southern France, where we established a Christian training center, YWAM Bridges of Life. 

We’ve also lived in Amsterdam, the San Francisco Bay Area, and Kona, Hawaii. And, for my work in Christian ministry, I’ve had the joy of traveling to over forty countries.

Despite missing our four children and four grandchildren, who live in the US, I love my life! I delight in the endless opportunities to discover past stories of depth and inspiration while soaking up the beauty, culture, and history all around. And, of course, there’s the incredible food and wine.

I’ve dabbled in writing over the years but never found the time needed to pen a novel. After a significant birthday a few years ago, I decided it was now or never.

Based on actual events, my first historical novel takes place in her village and home, the over 500-year-old Château de Planque.
