A former librarian, Janet now writes fiction that dives deep into the minds of her characters.

As a reader, I love stories that explore psychological and emotional journeys. Give me a far from perfect character, doing their best to build a life. I want to experience the world through their eyes.

So that is what I write about. My characters are imperfect and often frustrating. They often struggle with mental health and anxiety. Some are neurodiverse. Some have learning disorders. All of them struggle with self-acceptance and self-esteem.

And they get a happy ending. More or less.

There are no fairy tale happily ever afters, but I like to believe my characters ended up in a better place than where they started from, and as our journey with them ends, their story is just beginning.
