Janis grew up in and around Darwin and its rural surrounds. As a child, she spent a lot of time in her own imagination as there wasn’t much else to do when living in a swamp and dealing with fires or floods.
Janis now lives in the Adelaide Hills with her husband and 3 children, lovingly referred to as the ‘Demonic Hordes’. She is a work from home Haus Frau and carer of neuro diverse children. When not writing, she enjoys turning rags into yarn and other recycling eccentricities. One day she would like to live in a home made of mud and straw. But for now dabbles in the art of translating century old cookery books into modern recipes to experiment on her family with.
