Om Wanted: A Family (Mills & Boon Historica
Indulge your fantasies of delicious Regency Rakes, fierce Viking warriors and rugged Highlanders. Be swept away into a world of intense passion, lavish settings and romance that burns brightly through the centuries Janet Dean grew up in a family that cherished the past and had a strong creative streak. Her father recounted wonderful stories, like his father before him. The tales they told instilled in Janet a love of history and the desire to write. At twelve Janet penned her first "novels," even illustrating her little books. But when it came time to choose a career, Janet wanted to teach. She married her college sweetheart and taught first grade before leaving education to rear two daughters. During those early years, Janet and her husband found their church, joined Bible studies and developed a love of scripture and a closer walk with God. Volunteering at school and church filled her time, but once her daughters were grown, she revisited her longtime dream of being a writer. Delighted to combine her love of the Word and words, Janet turned to inspirational historical romance. She joined American Christian Fiction Writers, Romance Writers of America and Faith, Hope, Love. Her journey toward publication took nine exciting, sometimes painful years of learning the craft and dealing with rejection. Two of her manuscripts were Golden Heart finalists. One was a Genesis finalist. Janet's dream has come true: her debut Love Inspired Historical novel, Courting Miss Adelaide, hit bookshelves in September 2008. The sequel, Courting the Doctor's Daughter, is a May 2009 release. Janet is presently working on her next book set in the Indiana town. When she isn't writing for Steeple Hill Love Inspired Historical books, Janet stamps greeting cards, plays golf and is never without a book to read. The Deans enjoy travel and spending time with family.
