Meet the Author

Jane V. Blanchard, the author of the "Woman on Her Way" series, promotes writing as a business and blogs to help indie authors become successful. Her books describe hiking and biking adventures on the back roads and trails of the world. Her blog, "My Musings," provides strategies and support for indie authors.

Before retiring, Jane was a technical writer. Off work, she enjoyed hiking and biking, and climbed twenty of the forty 4,000-foot mountains in New England. She retired in 2011 to walk 500 miles on the Camino de Santiago in Spain—her first long walk. Now, Jane explores countries by foot and by bike, and then writes about the adventure for her readers' escape and entertainment.
In her first book, Women of the Way: Embracing the Camino, Jane mingled her personal story with conversations she had with modern-day female pilgrims who also trekked the Camino. In Hadrian's Wall Path: Walking into History, Jane shared her discoveries along the 84-mile path across northern England.

Jane started her blog in 2011 to chronicle her journey into indie authoring. As with any venture, some paths were more difficult than others. Sometimes she got lost and had to restart. Sometimes she went in circles. As she navigated her way into writing and indie publication, Jane realized that to be successful she had to treat her writing career as a business and started applying the skills she learned getting her MBA. Since that realization, Jane promotes "authorpreneurship" (being an author-entrepreneur).

Jane was born in Hartford, Connecticut. Upon graduation from college, she worked as a travel guide in Madrid, Spain, and cried at her first bullfight. In 1975, she and her husband, Dennis, lived in a tent in Winchendon, Massachusetts, for six months (until December), while they built a log cabin. After two years of living off the grid, they lived a self-sufficient lifestyle on a five-acre "gentleman's" farm. Before moving to Sarasota, Florida, Jane lived in Hampstead, New Hampshire, for twenty-four years. There she raised her two children, was a soccer and Odyssey of the Mind coach, and received the 1996 New Hampshire Excellence in Education Volunteer of the Year Award.

In Sarasota, Jane became involved with several local and national organizations bent on helping women, and hosted a weekly radio show on WSLR, "Woman Matters," for two-and-a-half years.
In her fifties, Jane started mountain biking and racing. In 2002, she placed second i
