Jana Smith

Jana Smith writes end-times Christian fiction with a hint of romance, for women of all ages. She hopes her books inspire her readers to grow their faith, to believe they are special with a divine purpose, and that there is hope for the future. Jana has had stories rumbling around in her head from her earliest memory. Stories that were first ignited by her grandmother’s bedtime tales and later nurtured by her active imagination. Her love of God’s word and interest in Biblical End times theology has led her to write a series of fictional stories dealing with this subject. Jana worked in medical research and has a BSc and a Master’s degree. Now, she focuses much of her time on writing, but when not writing she is an avid amateur photographer and loves to knit for her children and grandchildren. Jana lives with her husband in South-Western Ontario, in the home her father built. It is a place of peace and serenity, a place of reflection and contemplation. A place where stories are born and released to a life of their own.
