Janine Schott

Biography

Janine Schott was born, raised and educated in Adelaide, South Australia. Throughout her diverse career she has worked all around Australia in documentation and training in the software implementation environment (Information Technology in a variety of clients' industries). This experience facilitated her progression into a career as author. Her extensive experience in analysing an organisation’s “as-is” process and procedures, development of improved policy and procedures as online and printed end-user documentation and role-based training for beginners to specialists has honed her written and verbal communication skills, stakeholder relationship management skills and ability to relate to people of all backgrounds.
Janine’s confident, flexible, energetic and assertive approach and strong interpersonal skills have served her well in all aspects of her life. Her ability to think pragmatically and analytically combined with her exceptional verbal and written command of the English language make her an extremely efficient Technical Writer/Business Analyst (task-oriented introvert) while she is also very well suited to the role of Trainer (people-oriented extrovert). It is this personality/skills cross-over that enables few good Technical Writers to be good at training, liaison and negotiation not to mention generally being personable and able to deal with potentially difficult people. It also enables her to be very efficient at translating “technical” or “industry-specific” jargon into readable English.
Her meticulous attention to detail drives her to develop relevant easy-to-read books for everyone from novices to specialists.
On a personal level Janine, a serial monogamous dieter, tried diet after diet, each with the same disappointing result. In 2001, a lengthy juggle of dieting and many minor ailments culminated in a battle with a persistent migraine. Janine’s 30-year battle with her weight and abrupt solution to a six-week migraine sparked a journey of unimaginable discovery which became the foundation of the book The Epigenetics of Diet. It is about foods, imitation foods and contaminants and their effects on our emotions, bodies and behaviour. My first book explains how the reader can discover their ideal body shape without the need for drugs ... simply by eating real food ... a *dietary* survival guide! It dispels the myths asserted by the agricultural, pharmaceutical and psychiatric industries!
A number of elderly Australians have also teamed up with Janine to co-author many other titles about their knowledge, experiences and life journey. Her diverse experience and extensive skill set support her talent as a gifted author and co-author of books that appeal to a wide audience.
For my other titles I team up with experts in their fields to produce meaningful books about travelling safely and surviving natural disasters and man-made emergencies (Survival Guide), *University* survival guides that detail what is required and expected. Or the reader might like to learn about the Dead Sea Scrolls and a modern day interpretation designed to encourage the reader to ask questions about their reasons for being ... a *spiritual* survival guide, perhaps.
Epigenetics is a fascinating science that bridges the gap between nature and nurture. Additional titles in "The Epigenetics of ..." series, or *PTSD* survival guides, are planned and are due for release soon. Misunderstood is a pocket-sized edition of The Effects of the Epigenetics of Trauma ... with the latter having three editions (one for health professionals; one for military families and one for civilians affected, their families and carers). People evolve in order to survive. Children born on the Gaza strip with PTSD live longer than children born there without PTSD ... and they certainly aren't medicated either.
Simply take a look at the growing diversity of her titles. She has recently even edited and published her first fiction book! There is likely to be something for even the most discernible reader.
