Meet the Author

One of Janet Tronstad's favorite childhood memories is of borrowing Zane Gray novels from her grandfather's bookshelf.

"There probably weren't more than fifty titles there," she recalls. "It was only a shelf of old books in the back bedroom. But it was the call to adventure for me. I still remember what it felt like to start reading a new book. It's the same excitement I feel today when I start writing a new book."

Janet, one of five children, grew up on a family farm near Fort Shaw, Montana, a small town with a population of fewer than 200. This small town and the thriving church she attended have been an inspiration for her popular Dry Creek series of novels published by the Steeple Hill line.

"People respond to the characters I have in my Dry Creek series," says Janet, "and a lot of that is because of the sense of community they share. I think we all hunger to be in a place where people know us and accept us."

Janet likes to write books that show people struggling with issues in their life and in their faith. "We all struggle," she says. "That's why we like to read about other people who are facing problems."

In addition to the Dry Creek series, Janet is also currently writing books that are set in urban locations.

"The rural-urban switch is one I've been conscious of in my own life since I grew up on a farm and then, with graduate school and various jobs, lived in several large cities before settling in Pasadena, California," says Janet. "I often have a character that grew up in a small town and just moved to a big city or the other way around."

In her upcoming novel Going to the Chapel, Janet writes about a young woman who grew up in the relatively small town of Blythe, California, and then moved to Hollywood, hoping to find not only an exciting job but also the respect of her family.

Janet holds a master's degree in journalism from the University of Wisconsin and was published in various national magazines before she started writing fiction.

A Bride for Dry Creek By: Janet Tronstad This is another great story in the Dry Creek series. It features Flint and Francis. We do not know what the future holds for us, but we can rest in the knowledge that God holds the future. Francis and Flint had been married 20 years before, but her father told her that Flint left, and her father told Flint that Francis didn’t want to be married to him and even got him arrested. They spend the next several years wondering what happened and not finding love. She comes back to Dry Creek to free herself from her past. Little does she know, she will face her past head-on. She hopes she can forget Flint and move on to marry Sam. Flint is working with the FBI to capture the cattle rustling ring in Dry Creek. Flint has to kidnap Francis to protect her from the cattle rustlers. She is not happy, especially when she figures out who kidnaps her. Will he capture her heart again? Will she trust her heart to him again? Follow Flint and Francis as they put the pieces together of what happened on that fateful day when they married. Flint drops Francis off at her house so he can go pack; he never comes back. The story that unfolds will capture you and you won’t be able to put the book down until you’ve read the last page!
