Welcome to Books and Pens on Green Gables!


I’m so happy you’re here and I look forward to meeting you and helping you with your reading and writing needs!


I’m Janell, and Books and Pens on Green Gables is like the “grown-up” version of my first site, Green Gables Book Reviews.

Books and Pens (the nickname) will still have great book reviews, but I’m, also offering writing services, reading services, and consulting.


A little about me! My husband, Steve, and I have been married for 25 years. He’s the best, my biggest supporter, and truly my hero. I’ll blog about why he is my hero someday, but for now let’s just leave it as that if it wasn’t for him, I’d be a different person today than I am.


We’ve got two great adult kids, and are enjoying seeing them as they are doing adult things! We also have a dog, Ringo, he’s the best. Can’t wait for you to meet him!


When I’m not reading, which is almost always, I love to have coffee with friends, travel, be in my garden, and out on the lake. We live in the state of 10,000 lakes and we have a favorite!


Can’t wait to meet you!
