Janie Dean grew up in the south on a family acreage with her brothers and with a large extended family nearby. Even as a child, she read mysteries and played mystery games that let her imagination run wild.  After receiving a bachelor’s degree, she ventured from the south and pursued a master’s degree at a college in the Northeast and then job opportunities out west. Her husband’s work took her and her children overseas which led to many new experiences in foreign places.

Recently, she resettled from Florida to Colorado to be near family. Throughout her experiences she has written stories. Still enjoying mystery and intrigue, her passion continues through her cozy mystery stories.

As a child, she played under the quilt stretched on her grandmother’s quilting frame and later took her first inept stitches. In Square One, she combines her interest in quilting with her love of writing.
