Janet Fogg

Janet's focus on writing began while CFO and Managing Principal of OZ Architecture, one of Colorado’s largest architectural firms. Fifteen writing awards later she resigned from OZ to follow the yellow brick road, and ten months after that signed a contract for Soliloquy, a HOLT Medallion Award of Merit winner.

Her next book, Fogg in the Cockpit, a military history co-written with husband Richard, earned a coveted nomination by the Air Force Historical Society for best WWII book reviewed in Air Power History.

What has she been up to since?  Managing the 359th Fighter Group’s Facebook page, mentoring, graphic design, consulting with KGA Studio Architects, and responsibilities as Vice-President of Rocky Mountain Fiction Writers.  Oh, and more than a modicum of writing!

Speaking of which, there’s a new series in Janet's future, starting with Misfortune Annie and the Locomotive Reaper.  Co-written with “Gusto” Dave Jackson, this first in the Misfortune Annie series was released in October 2017. We hope you’ll stop by https://misfortuneannie.com for updates on sequels.

Misfortune Annie and the Locomotive Reaper
by Dave Jackson and Janet Fogg


When Annabelle Fortune, the fastest gunslinger in the wild west, inadvertently stops a stranger from attacking a train — and he wears a suit that enables him to fly! — the government believes she’s the only one to have witnessed the Locomotive Reaper and survived to tell the tale.

Promising to find out what he can about her missing father, the Director of the Secret Service persuades Annie to swear in. Too soon, her detested nickname re-stakes its claim.

Partnered with Beau Slokam, whose penchant for gambling leads them straight to the Doom Gang, Misfortune Annie guides the smooth-talking Southerner in a chase through the Rockies, with her Cheyenne friend, Wontoa, rounding out their unlikely trio.

When Annie again meets the Locomotive Reaper, his gadgetry proves far more advanced — and deadly — than even top scientists could have imagined.



Fogg in the Cockpit
by Richard Fogg and Janet Fogg

Nominated by the Air Force Historical Foundation for best WWII book reviewed by Air Power History!

Prior to a distinguished career that saw him referred to as the dean of American railroad artists, Captain Howard Fogg kept a diary during his World War II combat tour in England. He flew 76 missions with the 359th Fighter Group in both bomber escort and ground attack roles.

From his backstage encounter in a London Theater with Lawrence Olivier and Vivien Leigh, to the pre-dawn chaplain's benediction on June 6, 1944, to a mission escorting B-17s flying down a valley in the snow-capped French Alps as they dropped supplies to French freedom fighters, Fogg in the Cockpit offers a first hand look at Howard's fascinating and often unexpected story.

Soliloquy                
2010 HOLT Medallion Award of Merit

A tale of passion. Of heroes, hope, and the consequences of creating extraordinary music amidst the dark nights of World War II.

Swept back in time to Nazi-held France, concert pianist and composer Erin Meyer protects members of the Resistance by ghost-writing music for an influential German officer. She’s now performing for her life – and theirs. But what she thought was already a maze of confusion becomes even more mystifying when she helps a wounded British pilot evade capture. Arick Ambrose. She recognizes him from her own life and time. Erin’s attraction to Arick could prove deadly as the German officer who holds the key to Erin’s return demands more than Erin is willing to give. And if she returns home, will she ever find Arick again? For Erin, time is running out.
