Meet Mystery Author Janis Patterson

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

Today I’d like to introduce you to Janis Patterson, an amazing woman who has lived a life that has given her more than enough material for all the different kinds of books she writes.

“I write in so many genres because I bore very easily,” Janis, a seventh-generation Texan and a third-generation wordsmith said. “Variety keeps me and my writing fresh.”

Amazingly, Janis Susan May Patterson writes — and is successful in all these genres:

mysteries as Janis Patterson
romances and other things as Janis Susan May
children’s books as Janis Susan Patterson
scholarly works as J.S.M. Patterson.

Wow! Impressive, huh? Like the commercials say, “But, wait! There’s more!”


Janis has been:

an actress * a singer * a talent agent

Supervisor of Accessioning for a bio-genetic DNA testing lab

Editor-in-Chief of two multi-magazine publishing groups

Founder/original Editor of The Newsletter of the North Texas Chapter of the American Research Center in Egypt (ARCE), which for the nine years of her reign was the international organization’s only monthly publication

Founder of North Texas Chapter and closing speaker for (ARCE) International Conference, Boston, 2005.

Janis married for the first time when most of her contemporaries were becoming grandmothers. Her husband, a handsome Naval Reserve Captain several years younger than she, even proposed in a moonlit garden in Egypt. Now, Janis and her husband live in Texas with an assortment of rescued fur babies.
