Give Yourself a Writing Chance.

Janine is an international award-winning author of numerous books of all genres and screenwriter of many feature-length screenplays. Her books have been Amazon bestsellers in several subcategories including Women's History, Social Activism, Meditation, and Adoption. She won Gold and Silver for four of her books and placed first in the category of Adventure for her second memoir from various international book clubs. Janine holds a religious Master's Degree in Metaphysics and a Doctoral in Philosophy, specializing in Conscious-Centered Living. With almost 25 years of researching, writing and bookmaking experience, she makes for an optimistic and forward-thinking writing partner. When Janine's first memoir '03 (now titled Americanized '72) was read by Dr. Maxine Mimms, the founder of Evergreen College (best friend with Maya Angelo and mentor to Oprah Winfrey), Janine became inspired to uplift others with their own memoir writing journey. Her favorite philosophers include Lao Tze, Confucius, Siddhartha Gautama, and even Bruce Lee.
