I'm Jan, have a PhD, and am a member of David Farland's Apex Writers Group. I live in the Pac NW at the mouth of the Columbia River (Astoria), not too far from Wulf Moon. I'm a novelist at heart and write Historic Fantasy and Epic Fantasy. I love dragons and children. I have eight - children, that is, although Mordechai Fitzhugh Burnswell (my resident dragon) lives in the attic. ! I also received an HM from WOTF for my first attempt at SciFi. I enjoy writing in many genres and love to challenge myself with ones I haven't tried. I look forward to learning from this group!
