About the Author
Jan has a degree in Forestry and studied Plant Pathology in graduate school. Much to the chagrin of her editor and proofreaders, grammar has never been her forte.
She wrote her first book when her children were all at home. It took her four years, and when she finished, it was so awful, she burned it. Since then she has been working to perfect her craft. Inspiration for her stories have come from a name, life experiences, and often she dreams an entire storyline.
She's an avid and eclectic reader, passable cook, terrible housekeeper, and loving wife, mother, and grandmother. She loves spending time with her family-especially her grandchildren, who have her wrapped around their fingers.
Her idea of a perfect day is tromping through the woods of Indiana with her husband and their English Shepherd, Tucker (aka the Diabetic Dog).

Enjoyed reading the story, clean language and romance without the sexual language. Love the flowery language instead of cuss words.
Really cute and light read
For every “underdog” out there, this is your Cinderella story. NOT ACTUALLY ENGAGED is a very engaging read. The author had me from the start. Paige is dealing with three things that can make a girl crazy: she’s broke, she’s trying to lose weight, and she’s infatuated with a guy she thinks she can never have. I loved the chemistry between Cooper and Paige. Even though they go into their new living arrangements - she as his personal assistant until he recuperates from surgery and can get around on his own - with the clear intentions of a friendly, platonic, mutual respect kind of situation, things do not go as planned. Cooper thinks he’s picked the perfect girl to help him out because she’s not his usual type, which went the way of super thin, cheerleader, beauty queens. But he soon learns that sweet, kind, and funny Paige is more than skin deep. And what he can’t have makes him want it all the more. There are lots of funny situations that made me laugh out loud. I enjoyed the light-hearted banter and building attraction as Cooper and Paige come to terms with reality. There are twists and turns and a bit of suspense, but overall this is a romantic comedy at it’s best.
