And the long version...

Raised on a tropical island in the eastern hemisphere, USA Today bestselling author Jan Thompson now lives and writes in the western hemisphere. Her international background gives Jan a unique multicultural and multiracial perspective to her novels and books.

A transplanted resident of the new south for thirty years, Jan loves all things Georgian, from its landlocked piedmont metropolis to its ocean-flanked coastal islands, and all the little towns in between. 

After graduating from the University of Georgia with a Bachelor of Science degree in Computer Science, Jan Thompson worked in the Information Technology industry for ten years, first as database programmer, then as a website developer and IT consultant.

When she became a mother, Jan transitioned from programming to teaching. During this time, she affirmed her calling to be an author, and revived a lifelong interest in creative writing, something she has been doing since she was eight years old writing a letter on an Olivetti typewriter.

Whether they are multiethnic contemporary Christian romance, multinational romantic suspense and thrillers, or regional historical fiction and non-fiction devotionals, Jan’s books celebrate the grace of God and hope in Jesus Christ. Her books are for readers who love inspiring stories of faith, family, friends, and, yes, happy endings. Always.

Jan is also an avid reader herself and enjoys reading good books on pleasant days. When she is not busy writing and publishing, she is a wife, mother, educator, family scribe, and chief of staff to the family cat.

Jan is a member of the American Christian Fiction Writers (ACFW), the Published Author Network (PAN) of the Romance Writers of America (RWA), and the Christian Independent Authors (CIA) indie publishing discussion group.

Her life verse is John 3:16.

"For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life” (John 3:16).
