Janet Nolan loves the collaborative art of the picture book -- how a writer’s words and an illustrator’s art come together to create something magical. As an award-winning author, her picture books range from fiction to nonfiction to historical fiction. She searches for stories that haven't been told and fresh perspectives on events that bind us all together. 

Janet lives in Oak Park, Illinois. She has a B.A. from The Evergreen State College and a master’s degree in urban planning and policy from the University of Illinois at Chicago. Janet is a member of the Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators (SCBWI).


Janet is represented by Deborah Warren at East West Literary.
