Connect with Janice
I grew up in Chattanooga, Tennessee, home of Chickamauga Battlefield, Rock City, Ruby Falls, and the beautiful Tennessee Aquarium. I married my high school sweetheart between our sophomore and junior years of college and we graduated together from Emory and Henry in southwest Virginia. I later earned a masters degree in Reading and Story Arts from East Tennessee State University.
For fifteen years I taught kindergarten and second grade near Knoxville, TN, in the foothills of the beautiful Great Smoky Mountains. In the fall of 2002, I left the classroom to write full-time.
