“Knowing I needed to get back to this project proved to be the prescription to keep me moving forward and excited to wake up each morning. I want to encourage everyone going through a tough patch to plough ahead and I hope you glean something from my story that lets you smile, brings you laughter and warms your heart.”

ON BATTLING BREAST CANCER WHILE WRITING MEETING EVE
After closing her company and being inspired by friends and family to share her adventures, Janee embarked on a new journey of storytelling. When she was in the process of writing her debut novel Meeting Eve, she received a diagnosis of breast cancer. Over the next couple of years, not once, but twice, she fought to regain her health from surgeries and treatments. Then before Janee was able to finish writing her book, her beloved mother, an avid reader, passed away. In spite of the struggle, armed with the devotion and support of her husband and genuine love for life itself, Janee managed to release her first novel to the world.
Her time spent on the battlefield to wellness was unfortunately not over. A food-borne parasite invaded her body and nearly took her life. Again, she persisted, adapted, fought, and never gave up on the goal of recovery.
Janee is so grateful to be alive, even as she has to navigate the world with Toxic Induced Loss Of Tolerance (TILT, also referred to as Multiple Chemical Sensitivity or MCS), she carries a robust desire to entertain, educate, and create awareness.
A NATURAL STORYTELLER
Like most creatives, Janee has multiple outlets for her artistic visions. Currently, she is focused on her role as Executive Producer on four film projects. Previously she had worked as Executive Director on the short titled Chlorine, as well as another short film now in post-production, titled When The Rain Sets In. Janee adores the creative process, building something powerful out of an idea, principle, or lived experience. Coupled with her meticulous attention to detail, this woman puts her all into her work, and it shows. She spends her free time with her husband advocating for climate change, health, wellness, and helping others.
Janee is now at work to deliver her first documentary, a personal project highlighting Toxicant Induced Loss of Tolerance and Mast Cell Activation Syndrome. She has plans to re-edit her first book and to start working on her much-anticipated sophomore novel, which will further follow the adventures of the intrepid, Eve.
