Janet Fox

Janet Fox is a former high school English teacher. She became a children’s author in the mid-90s, when her son’s learning differences led her to develop her award-winning book for Free Spirit Publishing, Get Organized Without Losing It (2006). Other work for children includes fiction (Spider Magazine) and science nonfiction (Highlights for Children). Her young-adult debut novel, Faithful (Speak/Penguin Group, 2010) is an Amelia Bloomer List pick; it was followed by a companion novel, Forgiven (2011), a Junior Library Guild selection. Janet is a 2010 graduate of the MFA/Writing for Children and Young Adults program at Vermont College of Fine Arts, and a former Regional Advisor for the Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators. She is currently at work on a third YA and a fantasy middle-grade novel. Janet, her husband, and son recently moved from College Station, Texas, to Bozeman, Montana, where her son is a college student and Janet and her husband enjoy the mountain vistas.
