A self-proclaimed chatterbox, Janice was born when the Sun and Mercury were in Gemini, creating a strong drive for self-expression and communication. From her first memorization of Edgar Allan Poe's, "Annabel Lee," Janice was hooked on words and poetry. The rhythm, imagery and expression captured her imagination.
Over her professional career, Janice O’Brien was an Art Director, Package Designer, Brand and Marketing Director, all involving extensive promotional and business writing. Despite being a designer, O’Brien loved to write.
A poet, writer and designer, her first book, Poems I Wrote When I Wasn’t Talking, was published in 2015. In the Summer of 2023 her second book, Eating My Way Through Life was published. She loves to travel, connect with people, cook and eat delectable food.
After living most of her life in the New York metropolitan area, O’Brien now lives in Chester County, Pennsylvania.
