With a BA in Anthropology and Archaeology, and a MA combining Cultural Anthropology with Creative Writing, Janet's stories are inspired by the mythos of cultures around the world. From science-fiction to fantasy to horror, and from short stories to screenplays, Janet has seen her fiction published in a variety of online and print magazines, and placed in the finals and semi-finals of screenplay competitions. Next on Janet's agenda are more horror shorts, a horror screenplay, and the marketing of a family-friendly screenplay. The three stories published here are taken from Skin and Bones, a collection of eleven short stories and a novelette currently available from XC These dark-tinged, anthropology-inspired tales will intrigue fans of horror, dark fantasy, magical realism, and science fiction.
