Janet Elaine Smith has been writing for over 30 years, but her first book was not published until 2000. Now she has 22 books published and available. Three of them are non-fiction, including a memoir of the 9 years she and her late husband spent in Venezuela. "The rest of them are fun," she says. She writes in many genres, but her favorite is time travel, including her newest book, Port Call to the Future. "It is such fun to be able to change history." Several of her books are based on things she has found in her genealogy searches. She says her husband got all the rich and famous ancestors, while she got the fun ones.
 A Little about her new Book!

When pirate Black Sam Bellamy's ship, the Whydah, sank off the coast of Cape Cod in 1717, everyone from the crew was found, either dead or alive, except Black Sam himself. He was never seen again-until he washed up at a celebration of his demise that Blair Smythe hosted. Kin to Sam's love in the 1700s, Maria Hallett, Sam thought she was Maria. As Sam learns to deal with today's modern world, Blair sets out to prove that he is who he says he is. A fun romp through two times, with events that author Janet Elaine Smith says surprised even her. Port Call to the Future is the sequel to Maria's story, House Call to the Past.
