Janet Fogg

Janet Fogg's focus on novel-length fiction and screenplays began when she was CFO for the coolest architectural firm in Boulder. Numerous manuscripts and fifteen writing awards later, Janet resigned from OZ Architecture to follow the yellow brick road, and ten months after that signed a contract for Soliloquy, her HOLT Medallion Award of Merit winner.

In 2011 Casemate Publishing released Fogg in the Cockpit, co-authored by Janet and her husband Richard Fogg. Based on the wartime diary of Richard’s father, Fogg in the Cockpit offers a first hand look at Howard Fogg’s fascinating and often unexpected story as a fighter pilot during World War II.

Then there's two new books co-written with Gusto Dave: A Serenade to Die For, which will be released April 7, 2017 by The Wild Rose Press, and the first book in the Misfortune Annie series, Misfortune Annie and the Locomotive Reaper.

A Serenade to Die For by Janet Fogg and David Jackson

On the verge of her long-sought career breakthrough, singer Isbel Vargas has just completed the performance of a lifetime when a kidnapper demands a ransom for her father. Thanks to his car theft and antiquities operation, her father will be arrested if she involves the Acapulco police. Who can she turn to?

Isbel’s ex-boyfriend, Cane Mullins, is once again south of the border, purportedly tracking down his beloved Camaro, a vintage street rod stolen years before by her father. Cane gets more than he bargains for, though, when he again crosses paths with the exquisite singer. Chased at high speed through the Sierra Madres, the former lovers search for Isbel’s father and a priceless sword he has hidden away, the sole surviving Aztec maquahuitl, while sparks fly and passion reignites. But can Isbel trust Cane again…with her heart?
Misfortune Annie and the Locomotive Reaper by "Gusto" Dave Jackson and Janet "The Kid" Fogg

When Annabelle Fortune, the fastest gunslinger in the wild west, inadvertently stops a stranger from attacking a train — and he wears a suit that enables him to fly! — the government believes she’s the only one to have seen the Locomotive Reaper and survived to tell the tale. Promising to find out what he can about her missing father, the Director of the Secret Service persuades Annie to swear in. Too soon, her detested nickname re-stakes its claim. Partnered with Beau Slokam, whose penchant for gambling leads them straight to the Doom Gang, Misfortune Annie guides the smooth-talking Southerner in a chase through the Rockies, with her Cheyenne friend, Wontoa, rounding out their unlikely trio. When Annie again meets the Reaper, his gadgetry proves far more advanced — and deadly — than even top scientists imagined! 

Trail Winds by Janet Fogg

From Splitwing, the first Red-winged blackbird, to HeCoYa, a massive gray coyote, in Trail Winds you'll find fanciful tales of how five natural phenomena came to be.

A recent five-star review stated:  "Heroic metaphors told in the language of conversant animals, reminding adults of how truly clear was the world when we were young. Suggest you share out loud with children at the campfire...just to hear them in the right air."  J. J. Wilson 

Fogg in the Cockpit by Richard and Janet Fogg
A 2012 Air Force Historical Foundation award nominee for best WWII book reviewed in Air Power History

He flew 76 missions with the 359th Fighter Group in both bomber escort and ground attack roles. From his backstage encounter in a London Theater with Lawrence Olivier and Vivien Leigh, to the pre-dawn chaplain's benediction on June 6, 1944, to a mission escorting B-17s dropping supplies to French freedom fighters, Fogg in the Cockpit offers a first hand look at Howard's fascinating and often unexpected story.
