Janie Emaus believes when the world is falling apart, we’re just one laugh away from putting it together again.
She is the author of the time travel romance, Before the After, and the young adult novel, Mercury in Retro Love. She has an essay in the best selling humor anthology, You Have Lipstick On Your Teeth, the forthcoming Fiesty after 45 from Mill Park Publishing, and has been published in several of the Chicken Soup for the Soul books.
In a previous life (before cell phones and the World Wide Web) she wrote books for Parachute Press, the packager of the Goosebumps and Fear Street series, educational videos, ad copy for adult videos, and dozens of stories for The Los Angeles Times Kids’ Reading Room Page.
Her blogs appear on The Huffington Post, Purple Clover, In The Powder Room, Scary Mommy, Midlife Blvd, The Washington Post, Good Housekeeping and Woman’s Day. She was proud to be named a 2013 BlogHer Voice of the Year. But no award (well, maybe the Pulitzer) ranks higher than her family.
