Author, women’s fiction
Janis Thomas is the author of Something New, her laugh-out-loud debut novel published by Berkley Books in 2012. Of it, Sally Koslow (The Late, Lamented Molly Marx) effused, “[S]pot-on in capturing how it feels to be an upper-middle class suburban mom who longs for…something more. She writes with sparkle and humor.” Her equally funny follow-up, Sweet Nothings, was released July of 2013 and called “A breezy read” by Publishers Weekly. Eschewing legacy publishing, in a departure from the chick-lit genre she’s best known for, Janis is releasing a crime thriller called Murder in A-minor, A Sam Wedlock Musical Murder Mystery, under the pen name of J.T. Hamlin. Her latest is Say Never, out October. Janis has also written over fifty songs and two children’s books (with her dad).
