Award-winning author/illustrator Janet Morgan Stoeke has been creating books for children for over 25 years. Her intrepid and blithe hen, Minerva Louise has earned rave reviews and major awards. To contact her regarding signed copies, original illustrations, or author talks, click CONTACT ME, above.
Stoeke's work as a fine artist has begun to come into the limelight recently. Her recent oils focus on views of nature that have made a difference in the face of hardship. These landscapes, along with the poetry she has written, offer insights into the process of grief and the mysteriously effective ways that skies and other long views allow incremental shifts in the direction of joy.
