About Janet Uhlar

Author, lecturer, screenplay writer -- Janet’s genre is rarely seen. Her passion for the American Revolution is evident. Through her writing, Janet presents biography through a living, breathing form -- biographical fiction. The characters lived; the events occurred. The dialogue carries the stories. Janet firmly believes that when the private lives and unique personalities of historical figures are presented, and the dynamics between these characters brought out, history becomes much more than cold black print on a stark white page.

History takes on a life of its own, with true flesh and blood individuals whose acts of courage,


indifference, or cowardice shaped the world we live in today. This living history helps us relate to those who have gone before – offering inspiration, courage, and a sense of determination.

Janet was born and reared in Quincy, Massachusetts – hometown of John Adams, John Quincy Adams, John Hancock, and Josiah Quincy, Jr. She now lives on Cape Cod.  (Janet, in the middle, is surrounded by siblings in front of the Adam's Birthplace, Quincy, MA -- 1959)
