Meet three of our Spun Yarn Readers:

Janet from Georgia

Janet is one of our most veteran readers. She's in the enviable position of exercising her passions in her 'day job' as a cookbook author, food writer, copy editor, recipe developer, and cooking instructor. Janet loves language – not only reading and writing but editing as well (she's a grammar freak). Her passion for reading and her fifteen years in corporate communications make her an excellent, close reader for The Spun Yarn. Learn more about Janet in her reader profile.

Keene from Wisconsin

In his day job, Keene manages all of the software systems for Wisconsin's Department of Natural Resources, with more than 200 distinct locations and more than 3,200 users! For fun, Keene plays Backgammon and poker, and of course, reads books. While Keene loves Fantasy and Historical Fiction, he's also one of the Spun Yarn’s best Horror readers! Learn more about Keene in his reader profile.

Angela from Nebraska

By day Angela is the co-owner of a digital marketing company that focuses on content writing, website design, and social media management. At night and on the weekends, Angela battles to decide between her hobbies: fiction freelancing, writing for chat apps, and a personal project (right now it's a cozy mystery!). She's also a sports fan, poker player, cook, foodie, traveler and family woman. Learn more about Angela in her reader profile.
