Every great dream begins with a dreamer. Always remember, you have within you the strength, the patience, and the passion to reach for the stars to change the world. ~ Harriet Tubman
The Original Crossword Puzzles with an African-American Flavor™
About the Author

Jan is a self-professed "word nerd," She went on to college, majoring in journalism and taking on newspaper internships during the summers.   Jan didn't dream of being an investigative reporter or the first female African American author of crosswords -- she attended and graduated from the University of Pennsylvania law school and then headed for life as a corporate attorney in suburban Chicago, where she found herself with a heavy workload (and travel schedule to match) and little spare time.  But she discovered something between the airports and the friendly skies -- an urge to exercise her creative muscles whenever an idea and a spare moment collided. She decided to devote her full time attention to her passion for creating and went on to become nationally syndicated and creator of the Essence Magazine crossword puzzle. Now Jan is launching a new book series, "In Our Own Words, Crossword Puzzles by, For and About People of Color." The clue are the same pithy and humorous flavor found each month in Essence Magazine. You'll enjoy solving clues about subjects you know and when you're done you'll feel smart and not New York Times drained. Download your copy today and experience the "Essence" of enjoyment all month long!
