Janice Lierz


Janice Lierz dreamt of being a traveling troubadour but instead took a (maybe not so) daring path into the consumer products world. During those decades, she climbed ladders at Johnson & Johnson/McNeil CPC, Heublein, Pillsbury, Frito-Lay/PepsiCo and Whole Foods Market, where she was the president of several subsidiaries. After taming dragons, spinning tales, and perfecting her magic skills, she now spends her time with her gaggle of family and pets in the Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina, where she is writing novels.

She has a long family history with coffee and was inspired to write her first novel while on a visit to a coffee farm in Costa Rica.
