Janie Havemeyer has worked as a museum educator at The Metropolitan Museum of Art, an elementary school teacher in the San Francisco Bay Area, and a social studies curriculum designer. For the past six years, she has been working as a literacy tutor. She writes narrative, nonfiction picture books for children, and is busy thinking about the next eccentric character whose story she wants to tell.
Janie is the author of Catherine de’ Medici “The Black Queen,” and Njinga “The Warrior Queen,” both in The Thinking Girl’s Treasury of Dastardly Dames. Her latest novel, Call Me Ixchel, will launch in October 2014 as part of A Treasury of Glorious Goddesses.
