Janice Kay Johnson (Janice Bartlett) is a former librarian who now lives in the state of Washington, with her two teenaged daughters (who, deeply in disguise, often appear in her books!). When she's not chauffeuring them to play rehearsals or piano lessons, she writes, quilts, gardens and is an active volunteer at a no-kill cat shelter, featured in her Superromance, Beauty & the Beasts. She also serves as doorkeeper and can opener for more cats and dogs than she cares to admit to sharing a home with.
Her adult works include Seize the Day and Home Again, and All Through the House and Lifesaver, both of which were written under the name Janice Bartlett. Under the name Janice Stevens she has written six young adult novels including Take Back the Moment, which was named to the Children’s Choice list of the International Reading Association and Children’s Book Council. Her other books include an illustrated children’s book, Rosamund (Simon & Schuster, 1994).
