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."

    As much as I love Jan Karon's book, purchasing The Mitford Snowmen:A Christmas Story was a waste of my money. It is the only one of her books of which I have felt that way, and I believe I have read them all.

    I so enjoy Jan Karon, however this was a book with children-friendly illustrations, that read like an excerpt from one of her adult stories. It was too short to satisfy an adult, but too adult to interest a child. Makes a pretty table-top book at Christmas time.(:

    I enjoyed the Mitford series not only for the wholesome characters that makes you want to keep reading and reading but also for the way the Gospel is interwoven as part of the everyday life - as it should be with each Christian. Sharing this series with a friend is also a way to share the Gift of Jesus Christ.

    I love the Mitford series; I read the entire series in just a matter of weeks! Ms. Karon has quite a talent for writing, and I'm anxious to read the next of her writings.

    The Mitford Series is the most delightful reading I've ever done and I read constantly. I'm eagerly awaiting the continuance of "Life in Mitford" and sincerely wish to find more books as enjoyable to read.
