Janet Roberts of Nottinghamshire, England is a passionate humanitarian, healer and author.
For more than 20 years she has written features for the local Talking Newspaper for the Blind; and has had several articles in national magazines like Best of British, This England, and History Today;
She’s written several children’s books (Coming Home, Face at the Window, Secrets, and The Boy and the Monkey). And her novel Every 4 Minutes in 2011, with the sole intention of raising much-needed funds for the leprosy charity, Lepra. Her love of history is found in her non-fiction works Oil under Sherwood Forest; The Clumber Love Story; and The Hardwick Love Story (about Lady Arbella Stuart).
Her passion for all the diversions the local English countryside has to offer is creatively woven throughout her travel blog, and her tourist booklets for historical locations such as Thorsby Hall and Elvaston Castle:
“I live in the heart of England near the very famous Sherwood forest – the hiding place of Robin Hood. I love going out and about, so my heavily illustrated, detailed blog describes the places I’ve visited and what I thought about them. It’s ideal for people planning a visit, armchair travellers, or Anglophiles living abroad.”
Her charitable interests include working with Lepra (that compelled her to write Every 4 Minutes, which is how often someone is diagnosed with leprosy), and Tools with a Mission that started when a Baptist minister realised the things people throw away could change people’s lives.
Her Healing Hands volunteer service provides tools, techniques and distant healing for people no matter where they’re located, which was the genesis for her book, “THE POWER OF DISTANT HEALING.”
