About the Author
Jane is a retired special education teacher from Cleveland. She was born and raised in Cleveland and attended Cleveland public schools where she later taught. She lived on the Shoreline, Connecticut for about a dozen years where she learned to work with special need adults at a company called VISTA (Vocational Life Skills Center) and walked the beach every day.
She has a sister who is a professional artist and created the illustrations for Summer in Jane’s Garden; and a brother who is a retired electrician. She also has three grown sons, six grandchildren, and one great granddaughter.
“Today, I still live a short walk from the water. This time it’s Lake Erie again,” says Jane.
