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 for her latest, 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. Janis has also written over fifty songs and two children’s books (with her dad).
