Welcome! If you are a Christian and a new writer of novels for 8-16s, but feel a bit overwhelmed by the task, you’re in exactly the right place. 🙂

My name is Janet Wilson – I’m founder of Dernier Publishing (www.dernierpublishing.com) – an award-winning company with a growing number of authors and successful titles. I am also the author of several novels for young people  (under my pen name, J. M. Evans).

I love helping new authors get their books written and out into the world – that’s what Write for a Reason is all about.

I was brought up on the south coast of England, where I read voraciously, dreamed incessantly, and made up stories in my head while sewing patchwork. I discovered the love of God at the age of thirteen, after being introduced to church by a friend, and found a new story to share.

When I’m not publishing, writing, teaching, or dreaming up new plots for stories, you can find me walking in the countryside, spending time with family and friends, and helping with the local Community Fridge.

I currently live with on the very edge of London, where the urban landscape turns into woods and fields.

My passion is to get stories with Christian themes into the hands of young readers (partly because I became a Christian when I was a teenager, and books had a huge impact on my life).
