Janet Aird

Biography

Janet Aird spent most of the first part of her life moving around, from her childhood in Montreal, Canada and Connecticut, to a year in Europe, where she hitchhiked, worked and lived from Paris to a tiny island in Spain, and to Israel, where she volunteered on a dusty kibbutz. She lived in Vancouver for a year and then took a train to the East coast. She did stints at three universities, worked in cafeterias and fast food restaurants, and sorted mail at a post office. What always fascinated her were people and their relationships. She wrote everywhere she went. She married and had two children, who are raising families of their own now. They live in Los Angeles and Janet works as a freelance writer, writing magazine articles about the environment and sustainability. She's still fascinated by people and their relationships. Much of what she's learned inspired her novel, "Now I Remember I Love You."

Smashwords Interview

What's the story behind your latest book?
This novel began about ten years ago as journal entries that I wrote when my mother was diagnosed with dementia and later, Alzheimer’s disease. She fought the symptoms with everything she had, but the most heart-crushing for me was my father’s desperate denial of what was happening to her. Even when she stopped remembering who he was, even when she stopped being able to feed herself, he insisted that she was getting better. The pain became so intense that my mind began to escape into fantasy. "Now I Remember I Love You" is the result.
What are you working on next?
I'm working on a sequel to "Now I Remember I Love You." A minor character who appears at the end is the main character in this new one.
