Janine was born in Sydney, Australia (1976). Brought up in a working class family, Janine lost her father to a heart attack at the age of 14. She assisted her own mother a great deal with the upbringing of her three younger siblings.
Janine has traveled the world fostering her passion for education and early child development. She published her first book in 1995, and has qualifications in writing and editing.
Now happily married and the mother of two sons of her own, working full time and managing her own business, Janine understands the importance of education in young children, developing a unique approach by personalising children’s stories with subject matter that encourages the child to immerse themselves within the words on the page of her books.
