“Janice reminds me of the bada** reporters in movies.”

Yep. That’s what a total stranger said about me in this article for the Women of Cincy website, after I released my new book on the Ryan Widmer “bathtub drowning” case.

Best. Review. Ever.

All the positive reviews for my book are amazing and humbling. I just noticed today that several total strangers have written positive reviews on GoodReads. My favorite GoodReads comment so far is from a lady named Cynthia Fischer, who wrote: The book was well-written and well-researched. The author had observed all three trials and started “digging” […]

Media buzz about SUBMERGED

In case you missed it, I couldn’t have been more thrilled to see my former employer, The Cincinnati Enquirer, devote so much space to an article about some revelations contained in my book  as well as an excerpt of my book.  Those articles ran Sunday, July 15, when my book launched at two private book-signing parties.

The talk of the town!

My new book, SUBMERGED, is the talk of Cincinnati, a reader, Ashley Knobbe, told me–just three days after the book was released. I actually showed up at Ashley’s doorstep to PERSONALLY deliver her autographed copy and we had a great time discussing the case. As I’ve often said, this case hurts my heart and fascinates […]
