Janna Hill

Biography

The official biography:
Janna Hill is an East Texas author of fiction, short stories and poetry. Most of her career was spent as a licensed nurse before dabbling behind the literary scenes as a ghost writer. In January 2012 she decided to step out of the shadows and attach her own name to her efforts and hasn't regretted the choice for one moment. She doesn't shy away from her audience either saying, "Fans are just friends and family I haven't met... or wrote about yet."

Smashwords Interview

Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
I grew up in Texas. I'm not sure how it influenced my writing other than the twang and slang that spills onto the pages. I believe the people around me, family, friends and coworkers definitely influenced the characters that I write about but [I think] that influence could be found anywhere in the world as part of the human condition.
When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
I enjoy spending time with family as much as possible and I love to take pictures. I participate in the weekly photo challenge over at WordPress and exchange thoughts and photos with other photographers. The challenges not only inspire story ideas, they force me to get out and do a reality check.
