Janelle Jalbert is an award-winning author and native of sunny Southern California, but she is prone to travel at a moment's notice, including regular escapes to her 'second home' of North Carolina. Her work, in both fiction and non-fiction, highlights the magic in everyday living.
After more than a decade of teaching at every level from elementary to university, Janelle embraced her passion for writing that had been merely a side consideration as she followed the more "responsible" path.
In fiction, Janelle is the author of TRIANGULATING BLISS (Book 1 in the Mystique of Living Series) - medalist for Cross Genre Fiction in the 2015 New Apple Book Awards, and FLASH 40: Life's Moments - winner of the Silver Medal for Anthologies in the 2015 Readers' Favorite International Book Awards. In non-fiction, WINGDOG: Soul Pup, A Magical Mutt Memoir, is her latest release. Previous titles include: WINE FOR BEGINNERS and SUCCESS SKILLS FOR MIDDLE & HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS. She contributed to CONSCIOUS ENTREPRENEURS and the 2015 RAVE SOUP FOR THE WRITER'S SOUL. She has also served as a reporter and photographer covering national motorsports and education, a ghostwriter of more than a dozen best-selling titles, and a copywriter to top international corporations.
When she's not writing, Janelle can be found entertaining her wanderlust and love of the outdoors; enjoying loved ones, a good wine, and cooking therapy; or spending time at the track or with her pups.
