Janetta Messmer

Janetta Fudge-Messmer is an inspirational author, editor and speaker. She along with husband Ray of 34 years and precious pooch Maggie, became full-time RVers in 2012 and travel the USA in their Minnie Winnie. Winters are normally spent in SW Florida, enjoying the mild climate. She says Ray just wants to be where he can wear shorts the majority of the winter. Her writing path has led to Honorable Mention for fiction and nonfiction articles in Byline Magazine. She also received Honorable Mention for a fiction article in Writer's Digest Magazine. Guideposts Magazine published her article called, "A Working Relationship". She has been published in numerous compilation books such as Guideposts ("Shorthaired Miracle”), Singing News (How Could I), and A New Song (Poetry). Janetta's debut novel, "Early Birds," sets in motion her desire to mix comedy with her spiritual side. Janetta's hope is that the words the Lord gave her will inspire others. Her motto is: "Always enjoy the journey, no matter what road you're on". She's an accomplished speaker with over seven years in Toastmasters. Along with writing, she enjoys editing and ‌helping others fine tune their manuscript. Over the last few years Janetta has edited more than two dozen books by a myriad of authors.
