Janna Willard

I am a creator of fiction and of music. This web site will introduce you to both of my worlds of expression and creation.

I fell in love with words as a toddler and recited a poem about my new baby brother at a party when I was just two years old. I then learned to read when I was three, and I never really stopped.

I primarily write novels and short stories. I enjoy writing fantasy, light science fiction, and contemporary fiction.

Musically, I began taking clarinet lessons when I was ten years old. I later studied composition at the University of Calgary, graduating with a BMus in Composition in 1998. I am also a vocalist and play guitar.

I write for a wide variety of instruments, but my favourites are viola and clarinet. I particularly enjoy writing for eclectic chamber ensembles.
