In first grade, Janet Spaeth was asked to write a summary of a story about a family making maple syrup. She wrote all during class, through morning recess, lunch, and afternoon recess, and asked to stay after school.

Thus a writer was born. She lives in the Midwest and loves to travel, but to her, the happiest word in the English language is home.
