Cursed and blessed with an insatiable curiosity and a low tolerance for boredom, Janice Boekhoff has worked more than twenty jobs ranging from pizza delivery driver to fecal collector (did you know cows poop when you make them stand up?) to research geologist.
She began writing as a way to express all of the unique ideas colliding in her head. Her browser history would reveal such disturbing searches as: How many people were decapitated in search of the Lost Dutchman gold mine, how easy is it to blow up a glacier, and what’s the best way to catch a dinosaur?
Janice’s novels have been finalists in the ACFW Genesis Contest and the Carol Awards, and her most recent novel won the Utah RWA Great Beginnings Contest. When she’s not looking up weird stuff to write about, she’s driving her three kiddos to basketball practice, huddling inside with her hubby during the freezing Iowa winter, or hiking the trails with her active Vizsla in the humid summer.
