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 three sons – one with autism. Janet had four sons but her and her husband’s oldest nonverbal, autistic son passed away. His loss has played heavily on their hearts. Janet’s late father, Nebraska State Sen. George Syas, served 26 years in the Unicameral.

Favorite biblical scripture:  “God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble.” (Psalms 46:1).
