A Bit About Me
Jan Tenery spent most of her childhood on the road with her military family. This wanderlust continued into adulthood, inspiring trips to such places as Kenya and Australia, sometimes as an amateur astronomer but often simply as a tourist and observer. After a rewarding career in healthcare, she decided to retire and pursue creative interests.
In 1999, she moved to Arizona and lived on a seven-acre citrus farm in east Yuma County. In between climbing ladders and harvesting fruit, she indulged in woodworking, playing percussion, and pastel painting, as well as writing stories. Jan now lives in Oracle, Arizona. Primarily a novelist, she endeavors to tell contemporary stories with a humorous lilt.
