A note from Janis


At the present time, the books you'll find on this site are being reissued after a bit a updating and slight editing (but nothing to change the stories!).  This means they're all getting new covers, and with few exceptions, are available only as e-books.  Please check back often, as I'll be adding more titles as I get them finished, and get new covers for them.  Meanwhile, happy reading!

Happy Reading!
