Janelle Stalder was born and raised in Ontario, Canada. She loves her home country, except for the winter, so basically eight months out of the year she is miserable and cold. She has four wonderful children - Aiden, Elora, Violet, and Clara, and has been with her hubby since she was just a wee girl of 17. Writing is her passion and escape. Everyone always asks how she does it with four kids, four animals, a home business, and everything else that comes with all of that, and honestly? She doesn't know. She just does. When you know what you love, you find time to do it. Words and stories; characters and worlds that come to life between pages - they are what make writing fun.
