Janice Kaplan

I spent a year living gratefully to write "The Gratitude Diaries" and I ended up having the best year of my life. I'm thrilled that this book can help other people have the best year of their life, too. Now that I've written "How Luck Happens," I'm excited to spread the word that you can make luck happen for yourself. Both books show how you have more control over your life than you realize.
I spent many years as a TV producer, creating primetime television shows for the major networks, and I also write novels about women who's lives are filled with adventures and fun. I've also been Editor-in-Chief of Parade magazine and deputy editor of TV Guide--positions that put me in touch with stars from Matt Damon to Clint Eastwood to Barbra Streisand. I love bringing my experiences in these (supposedly) glamorous worlds to my readers.
