Introduction Born and raised in the Yampa Valley of the Northern Colorado Rocky Mountains, I was the middle child in a family of six kids with two hard-working, dedicated, and honest parents. I was raised on a cattle ranch, riding horses since early childhood. Today, I live in rural Montana, with my husband, Stan, a builder by trade. In the fall of 2001, I opened a publishing company, Raven Publishing, Inc. from which I've issued books from nine other authors, including two children under the new imprint, Nesting Tree Books. I've written more than a dozen books, and ten of them are published so far. I have also published three cross-curricular units designed for teaching from two of my novels and one by Jan Young. I've developed and present a fiction writing workshop and publishing seminars. I am always happy to visit schools and give public readings and lectures. Feel free to e-mail me at any time about my classes, my books, or my publishing company. www.janetmuirheadhill.com
