Tucson Festival of Books

Janet Fogg


Janet Fogg's focus on writing began while chief financial officer for OZ Architecture, the coolest architectural firm in Colorado. Nine writing awards later she resigned from OZ to follow the yellow brick road, and ten months after that sold her first novel, "Soliloquy," a HOLT Medallion Award of Merid Winner.

Her late father-in-law's World War II diary led Janet and husband Richard to write the best seller "Fogg in the Cockpit." Now managing the 359th Fighter Group's WWII archives, Janet and Richard have published two military histories about the 359th, with more on their event horizon.

Subsequent to coauthoring three novels, in 2022 Janet published "Shadow Patterns of Melt" while penning serial tales for Kindle Vella and also contracting with Bison Books for Bob West's "Twenty Miles of Fence: Blueprint of a Cowboy."

Fogg regularly volunteers with Rocky Mountain Fiction Writers and in 2018 was named RMFW's Honored Guiding Member.
