Because Jan knows that everyone has a story to tell, most recently, she developed a painless and fun method to help others write their story. Her Write YOUR Story workshop taps into the power of the subconscious so that stories come to life and practically write themselves.

Jan is also the producer of The Path to Publication DVD series, available from Films for the Humanities and Sciences. Filmed at the Community of Writers Conference at Squaw Valley, the series contains advice from such well-known authors as Amy Tan, Anne Lamott, Janet Fitch, and Mark Childress.

Jan has a B.S. in English Literature/Creative Writing and an M.S. in Educational Technology/Instructional Design.

She lives in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada where, when she’s  not writing, Jan hikes with her Golden Retriever, kayaks with her husband, and regularly works out at the gym.
