As a young child Janet Greer loved children’s picture books. She also enjoyed sharing that passion with her two daughters. However, it was the arrival of her grandchildren that ultimately inspired her to write a book of her own. When You Hear a Siren marks Janet’s debut in the world of children’s literature.
The decision to write When You Hear a Siren stemmed from Janet’s own fear of sirens as a young child. The story of how Lucy deals with that fear will hopefully help other children understand that sirens mean help is coming to those in need. It also provides the opportunity to teach young children the habit of praying for our policemen, firemen and other emergency responders, as well as others.
A native of beautiful East Tennessee, Janet continues to reside there with her husband and their large extended family. Her interests include painting, sewing, photography, reading and the great outdoors. She is also an active volunteer in her community.
