Janete was born on the Caribbean island of Dominica and grew up in New York City. Longing to experience life overseas, Janete moved to Paris, France where she spent nearly a decade. Her travels eventually led her back to the States where she wrote her first novel, The Seeds of Green Mangoes. A bona fide Francophile, she divides her time between New York City and France. She is currently working on her second novel.
