About Janna

Janna-avatarJanna is an author and musician from a cottage town in Ontario, Canada. She started writing stories, lyrics, and poetry as soon as she could hold a crayon and has been loving it ever since. Her passion is to create stories about people going through real struggles and discovering strength and healing in sometimes unfamiliar and unexpected ways.

Her debut novel, A Girl Named Grace, is in many ways a reflection of her own journey with God, and one in which she has found herself discovering more and more how deeply she is loved by Him. Her second novel is the first of a dystopian series, The Remnant Chronicles, which will be released this fall.

Aside from writing novels and blogging, she and her husband also write music, run a custom design company, and are raising their four daughters in southern Ontario.

Janna is a pure-bred Canadian.  Which means, when you ask her where she’s from, you will normally hear a list of ancestral ties, such as, “Mainly Scotland, although some of my family may have come from England.  We have a castle in Scotland, you know.”

Never-mind that the aforementioned castle is in ruins.  In fact, the last family member to visit said castle was escorted to an unkempt pile of rocks.  Some believe this was a practical joke of sorts.  Janna does not.

She swore when she was younger and owned nothing but torn jeans and lumber jackets, that if she were ever to marry, she would certainly only want one or two children and most likely would adopt so she could be sure to only have boys.

Nineteen years and four daughters later, she has been known to wear not only the odd . . . achem . . . dress, but has been seen in pink as well. She denies this fact.  Not the daughters.  But definitely the pink.  They have been slowly chiseling away at her heart all these years.  God only knows what will happen next.  Maybe even heels?  Those Doc Martin’s have been fastened to her feet for quite some time now but, at this point, the sky’s the limit really.
