photo of porch for bioJanet Van Gorden is a small town girl who writes contemporary romance, uniting hearts and rekindling lost love.  Her first book, His Second Chance, is closest to her heart as it marks the beginning of a lifelong dream to be an author.  Her fondest childhood memories are of long summer afternoons spent on her porch surrounded by piles of books waiting to be read, and open notebooks ready to be filled with blossoming stories.

When Janet isn’t filling her role as author, she enjoys her extraordinary life as Mom to her three children, and wife to her husband, aka her High School sweetheart.  She appreciates quiet evenings, romantic movies on the Hallmark Channel, cheering wildly at her children’s sports games, and baking for the holidays.
