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 each 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 on coming...Lloyd's poems, articles, and stories have been published in various periodicals. Some are available on her website www.bjanelloyd.com. She looks forward to hearing from readers there.
