About the Author:
Nancy Janes,a former Clinical Social Worker,is now realizing a long held goal of writing daily. Her Appalachian roots, Christian heritage and the urban settings of her adult years find expression in her writings.
The Boy Who Walked A Way was written over a span of several years. The story went on the shelf while she twice moved across country. The characters foiled her attempt to write a children's short story by taking on a life of their own once she returned to writing. She and the characters meandered happily along together on the venture of creating a book suitable for both children and adults.
Nancy Janes plans to release another work based on selected characters from the book in the future.
