Author and Editor

She’s an editor by trade, and yes, her last name really is Fix.

An indie editor and writer, Janet Fix offers decades of experience in the words services industry, including all levels of editing and ghostwriting in a variety of genres. As owner of thewordverve inc., she acts as a book shepherd of sorts, guiding writers through their publishing journeys with a heavy focus on quality editing.

She is author of a children’s book series called Ranch Hero, and now has truly come out from behind the red pen to coauthor her first mystery spinoff series alongside bestselling author Cheryl Bradshaw called Sloane & Maddie: Peril Awaits. See below for more details on both.

A graduate of the University of South Florida, Tampa, with a degree in speech communication, she currently lives in the North Georgia mountains, where creative inspiration abounds.

Mystery Series, a collaboration

As longtime editor for Cheryl Bradshaw, 11-time USA Today and NYT bestselling author, Janet knows Cheryl’s characters and writing style well. In 2021, they joined forces to create a spin-off series with one of Cheryl’s most beloved characters, PI Sloane Monroe. Click to learn more about Sloane & Maddie: Peril Awaits.
