Janice Hisle grew up in Northeastern Ohio. She enjoyed reading as a kid, so much so that she even developed her own version of the dewey decimal system for her own personal library. Janice, however, developed a love of reading one genre in particular: mystery. Janice was intrigued by the way mystery stories unfolded and left you guessing until the end.
Her love of reading eventually led her to a love writing. She first started writing around age 12 and later on in school started helping the school newspaper. Janice went on to study journalism where she learned the importance of asking the question: “why?”
Janice’s curiosity and never-ending quest for discovering “why” helped make her not only a successful journalist, but it led her to one of the most important cases she would study and later write about in her book: “Submerged: Ryan Widmer, his drowned bride and the justice system.”
