I did a lot of research. I wanted those portions of the book that were historical to be accurate. As for the ending, I deliberately left it open to possibility, although at the moment I have no sequel written. We'll see!(less)

First, thanks so much for reading Faithful and I'm so happy you're enjoying it! I had to smile when I read your question, because when that cover first came to me, I asked my editor if there was any way to change the dress so that it looked more appropriate for the period. While I love the cover for other reasons, that dress has always bothered me. You're right - not only does it not look historical, it would have been highly inappropriate (not to mention cold!)
One of the things an author with a traditional publisher has no control over is the cover.
That said, I hope what you find inside is fun and enjoyable!
Cheers and happy reading - Janet(less)

An Interview with Angie Smibert

I’m delighted to host Angie Smibert, whose next spooky book, THE TRUCE, is out today! I’m going to dive right in…….





Please give us a brief summary of THE TRUCE.





This is probably a bit more set up than summary. (Don’t want to give away any spoilers.)





In the third book of the Ghosts of Ordinary Objects series, it’s December 1942 in the small coal mining community of Big Vein, Virginia. By now, Bone

Janet answered Isaac Toit's question: Janet Fox
Hi Isaac! The Artifact Hunters idea came from a watch I saw in an article - a "Death's Head Watch." It's really creepy (look it up), and I thought how it would make a great time travel story. The rest of the idea evolved from there. By the way, my ma See Full Answer

“I know a place on this Earth that contains wonders enough to stop the breath. A place where the very rocks whisper and whine, where the rivers boil and the snow-studded peaks thrust into a bowl of blue; where great shaggy beasts press the earth with cloven hooves or threaten with claw and fang; where new life and lurking death coexist in the shallows of varicolored pools.”
Janet Fox, Faithful

“And when I shed my old skin, what soft and tender flesh did I expose?”
Janet Fox, Sirens
