About B Jane Lloyd

How exciting to find your calling just when life is supposed to be winding down! B. Jane Lloyd retired from a full-time job at the end of 2013 in order to pursue the passion for writing she discovered in her mid-30's. This was a surprise romance. She detested composition classes in school.

Lloyd started a personal poetry business in 1986, creating poems for special occasions tailored to the individual recipient. Freelance writing for newsletters and local magazines followed. Writing books came easy...the characters often narrated their stories to Lloyd while she transcribed.

And the inspiration keeps coming...Lloyd's poems, articles, and stories have been published in various periodicals. Some are available on her website at She looks forward to hearing from readers.

Lloyd lives with her husband/best friend in the U.S. Their children, grandchildren, great-grandchild, and grand-dogs live nearby. A large extended family and zany friends provide stability and delight. You'll find many of them reflected in her books.

It's a wonderful life!

Review by: Carol on March 23, 2014 :
Such a gentle and insightful way to address the subject of death is found in this book. I found it a wonderful way to explain a relative's passing to my young grandson and granddaughter. I was very grateful for this book at a most difficult time. Many thanks to the author for her loving explanation of a subject often thought about but rarely addressed with children.
