Author Bio

Jan Karon, born Janice Meredith Wilson in the foothills of North Carolina, was named after the title of a popular novel, Janice Meredith.

Jan wrote her first novel at the age of ten. "The manuscript was written on Blue Horse notebook paper, and was, for good reason, kept hidden from my sister. When she found it, she discovered the one curse word I had, with pounding heart, included in someone's speech. For Pete's sake, hadn't Rhett Butler used that very same word and gotten away with it? After my grandmother's exceedingly focused reproof, I've written books without cussin' ever since."

Several years ago, Karon left a successful career in advertising to move to the mountain village of Blowing Rock, North Carolina, and write books. "I stepped out on faith to follow my lifelong dream of being an author," she says. "I made real sacrifices and took big risks. But living, it seems to me, is largely about risk."

Enthusiastic booksellers across the country have introduced readers of all ages to Karon's heartwarming books. At Home in Mitford, Karon's first book in the Mitford series, was nominated for an ABBY by the American Booksellers Association in 1996 and again in 1997. Bookstore owner, Shirley Sprinkle, says, "The Mitford Books have been our all-time fiction bestsellers since we went in business twenty-five years ago. We've sold 10,000 of Jan's books and don't see any end to the Mitford phenomenon."


Brenda W. Furman is Jan’s younger sister and the perfect person to shape a volume that contains the very cream of nine bestselling novels.

    This is truly "the best of the best" from Jan Karon! It is the perfect gift for those newly in love with the "Mitford Series" or for those who have loved Jan Karon's writings for many years and are homesick for a return visit to Mitford.

    WONDERFUL! It's so neat to have Uncle Billy's jokes, so many of the 'special' recipes, not to mention that neat crossword puzzle. I took it up and read it while recouping from surgery, and now, I have it at work to read on my lunch hours. Thank you, JK, for all the great memories!!

    I have all the Mitford novels and this companion was just great for looking up who everyone was, as there are a lot of characters in all the books. I have enjoyed this series of books more than any other series of Christian novels. It was fun to go back after I had read all the novels and remember the best of the best, using this guide.
