Following a family tragedy, Janet Grace Riehl returned to her childhood home in the Midwest. There, through her craft, she discovered a new sense of connection reuniting her, and the reader, with life through her debut collection Sightlines: A Poet’s Diary.
Janet is an award-winning author, artist, performer, community mentor, and creative collaborator. Her poems, stories, and essays have been widely published in national literary magazines such as Harvard Review and the anthologies Stories to Live By: Wisdom to Help You Make the Most of Every Day and Hot Flashes 2.
Her life moves between the big city in St. Louis in the Central West End to the family home place on the bluffs above the Mississippi River in Southwestern Illinois where she collaborates on creative projects with her 92-year-old father. (From the author's website.)
