About Janet

Janet Syas Nitsick


 Shy, natural redhead Janet Syas Nitsick’s writing passion began as a child when she wrote a neighborhood play at 10-years-old. However, her dream of becoming a writer did not materialize until she became a journalist after earning her Bachelor of Arts degree from Omaha’s College of Saint Mary in 1995 as a returning student.

Seasons of the Soul, her first book released in 2006, won Best of Year. In 2010 Janet’s story, “The Silver Lining,” placed 10th in the Writer’s Digest mainstream/literary competition.

Janet writes mystery, suspenseful, clean, Christian, historical, homespun-romantic tales set in Nebraska. She is married and has four sons – two with autism. Her late father, Nebraska State Sen. George Syas, served 26 years in the Unicameral.
