Janet Ference, Writer

I write short fiction, novels, and plays. I love the worlds I can create with words. It’s always a surprise to discover the lives of the people in these worlds, and I’m grateful to lose myself in the mystery of their stories.

My latest project is a serial fiction work, Francie Phipps Wakes Up. I’ll be posting chapters weekly on this site. I hope you’ll subscribe to follow installments of Francie’s singularly strange life story.

I’ve published a collection of microfiction, Between Blinks, artfully short stories. For more about this, check out my “Between Blinks” page.

I’m also currently working on a new version of my novel, Riversbend Elegy for guns, sax, and harp. It’s the story of two families grieving the loss of a young soldier who died in the war in Iraq in 2004.
