Congratulations to member Janet Fisher on the sale of her second book,The Shifting Winds, a historical novel of early Oregon, slated for release next April. Her agent Rita Rosenkranz closed the deal with Globe Pequot Press/TwoDot, publisher of Janet’s first book, a biographical history A Place of Her Own.
The new novel portrays reluctant pioneer Jennie Haviland, a young woman torn between two men, American mountain man Jake Johnston and British Hudson’s Bay Company clerk Alan Radford, who vie for her as their nations vie for the contested territory of this rich western frontier, while rumors of war stir.
Fisher’s love affair with history began as a child when she listened to stories of her pioneer ancestors. She lives and works on the farm her widowed grandmother bought in 1868 to raise her children alone on the Oregon frontier. Fisher holds a master’s in journalism from University of Oregon.
