Jean Maxwell

Janice Robinson writing as Jean Maxwell

Born and raised in the True North Strong and Free, Janice believes she came out of the womb with a pencil in hand and began drawing at a very early age. A graduate of both the Northern Alberta Institute of Technology in Engineering Design and Grant MacEwan Design Arts program, she switched from draftsman to graphic artist in her early career. Suffering from a deplorable excess of creativity, she recently indulged her urge to write that had been simmering since sixth grade, resulting in her first romantic suspense novel, El Mirador.

Janice lives in Edmonton, Alberta with her husband and two teenage sons, and works as a Communications Coordinator for an energy services firm. She teaches night classes in desktop publishing and pursues freelance graphic design work in addition to playing clarinet with the Cosmopolitan Music Society.
