The stories and the thoughts behind them stay with you for a long time.
Janice Earnest has a rare gift.
Her words can make you laugh.
They can make you cry.
They can make you think.

I’ve always believed that great writing means telling a story from one heart to another.
Janice knows how to do it.

She sees things we don’t see.
And, from a reader’s point of view, I’m grateful she does.
Janice has recently released four short stories that are currently available on Amazon.
They are quick to read.
But the stories and the thoughts behind them stay with you for a long time.
