Janet Taylor lives in such a small town in Arkansas that if you happen to sneeze when you pass by, you'll totally miss it. (Cause, you know, you can't sneeze with your eyes open. For real--try it--it's impossible)

Her first novel, INTO THE DIM, (which debuted 3/1/2016 from Houghton Mifflin Harcourt) is about a 16 year old girl who travels through time. Totally on purpose and stuff.

There are two things that are equally amazing, actually.
One is getting to know other authors, publishing folks, bloggers, etc...within the writing community. My circle of friends has widened so far, I can hardly believe it!
And the second--for me--is seeing characters I hadn't even planned on just come alive right before my eyes. It's like--"Who the hell are you, and where did you come from?"
There is a nun in Dim, that I did not plan, or even think about planning for. But there she was. She just sprang to life out of nowhere and took her place on the page. Now, she's one of my favorite "people" in the book.(less)
