Say hello to Janet Beasley, the inspirational epic high fantasy author, (also known as historical fiction author J.D. Karns) with a fantastical imagination. Raised in Beavercreek, Ohio Janet became a child of the arts.  She began singing and dancing at the age of 4. She branched out into band, high school choir, show choir, and church choir. She and her husband, Don, are high-school sweethearts who married in 1981. This epic duo built their careers together as performers, technical theater professionals, producers, stage play writers, and directors. They founded and built a successful audio visual design/install company for churches and theaters. They have since gone on to become award-winning steampunk artists, and international speakers/trainers/consultants. Janet co-developed and served as an instructor for a Young Writer's Workshop, and through that venture she also wrote and published numerous lessons for a comprehensive creative writing curriculum on both novice and college levels. Don & Janet are members of Renewal Church Apopka, FL. Both are certified chaplains through Canines for Christ International Ministry, and are the Central FL Chapter Leaders. They are certified through Billy Graham Ministries as Rapid Response Team servants, and also volunteer on the Advent Health Pet Therapy team with their Bichon, Brimley.
