Biography's Source:

Born in Santa Monica, Janine Ellen Young spent her childhood in a succession of "American Dream" homes, complete with the requisite heated pool, two-car garage and a seemingly endless number of neighboring, dysfunctional families. In 1980 she toured Europe and lived for a month in Cambridge, England before subsequently receiving both a bachelors and masters degree in English Literature from the University of California, Los Angeles.

Currently, she teaches English composition and children’s literature at Santa Monica College and is renowned as SMC’s resident expert in the genre of Speculative Fiction. Janine was a featured guest at the Mt. Saint Antonio Writer’s conference and her first novel, CINDERBLOCK, made Locus magazine’s "1997 Year in Reivew" Recommended First Novel list. Janine lives in Santa Monica with her husband, comic-book author Doselle Young.
