About Janie Dempsey Watts (Chattanooga, Tennessee Author)
Curiosity may have killed the cat, but in Janie’s case led to a writing career. After receiving her B.A. in journalism from U. C. Berkeley, she wrote for newspapers and television before turning to fiction. She enjoys creating stories and sees this peculiar occupation as a chance to bring order to a chaotic world, and of course as a good reason to eavesdrop in order to write dialogue.
In addition to her new children’s picture book, Pap Pap Goes to Paris, Janie authored two novels set in the South, Moon Over Taylor's Ridge, nominated for Georgia Author of the Year, and Return to Taylor's Crossing, an Indie B.R.A.G. Medallion honoree and third place winner in the Frank Yerby Literary Competition. She also published a short story collection, Mothers, Sons, Beloveds, and Other Strangers.
After living in California for many years, Janie returned to her native South. She now lives in North Georgia near her family farm and Taylor’s Ridge, a real place featured in her two novels.
