Janis grew up in and around Darwin and its rural surrounds. As a child, she spent a lot of time around 'science geeks' at the Darwin University, where her father was a lecturer for many years. It took her a long time to realise that not everyone got to grow up like that, or could relate to all the Science Labs scenes in the old Doctor Who.

Janis now lives in the Adelaide Hills with her husband and 3 children, lovingly referred to as the ‘Demonic Hordes’. She is a semi-retired ICT Support Officer who, when not writing, takes pride in her work as a Haus Frau while dabbling in the art of translating century old cookery books into modern recipes to experiment on her family with.

Write for the sake of writing, not for fame or fortune. If you breathe therefore must write - you're already a writer so keep it up.

Also if you want to get your writing noticed - never give up. Rejection is part of life so treat it as a small speedbump rather than a brick wall.(less)

Hi everyone,

Yes I have been a completely and utterly useless author of late and I still managed to get a book published. But don’t think “lucky cow, does nothing and still gets published” as that isn’t true at all. I got signed to have this book published back when I was still actively writing and it had to wait its turn to be published and – ta da! Here it is.

Has it made any sales or gotten...
