She's also published in a range of genres from nonfiction self-help to fiction, children's books, and even poetry. She started her small press, Hannacroix Creek Books, Inc., more than 20 years ago. Jan has been in the publishing business since she was 23 years old, when she began as an editorial assistant at Macmillan Publishing Company. Her first book was published by Scribner when she was 26. Since then, she has published or self-published 49 award-winning books translated into 34 languages.
