Janice grew up in the coalfields of Hunter Valley, New South Wales. She developed a passion for writing after winning an inter-school essay contest on unionism at age eleven. After graduating from high school she went on to study teaching at Newcastle Teachers’ College and taught in the district for a few years before going into business. Living in the area from the 1940’s and right through until 1992 has given her an understanding of the people and the environment..
The desire for creative writing was always there and Janice signed up for a correspondence writing course. Family commitments and work got in the way of fulfilling her goal to become an acknowledged author. However, that spark remained, and over the past ten years Janice has managed to fit many creative writing workshops into her busy life. During that period she enjoyed the privilege of being mentored by a published author for over three years. When the inaugural Redlitzer anthology was promoted by Redlands Library, Janice won a place with her short story: Always. This success, accompanied by encouragement and critiquing from two writing groups, has allowed her to follow her dream, and complete and publish her first novel: All Naked & Bare.

Prior to reading this book, I had never heard of Janice Gallen.....Wondering whether the style and the story were for me, I started reading the free preview.
What I hadn't planned... was the fact that I wouldn't be able to stop reading it until the end....And so after purchasing her book, and reading it straight for the next few hours, I became a fan of this - very new to me - Janice Gallen!
I recommend this book and this author to anyone who likes well written romance with an actual story line to it! It is well paced, exciting, romantic and refreshing. Something all women need after a long day!
Well done, Janice, looking forward to reading more of your books!
