Jan Fancy Hull
Jan Fancy Hull lives and writes beside (and sometimes on) a quiet lake in Lunenburg County. She was born on Nova Scotia’s Eastern Shore.
She has embarked on writing a series of Tim Brown Mysteries, which are set (so far) on Nova Scotia’s south shore. The first, January: Code, was published in 2021. February: Curious and March: Enigma will be released in 2022.
Her debut non-fiction book, Where’s Home?, was published in the summer of 2020. Using open-ended questions in a survey, and multiple personal interviews, Jan explored the many ways Nova Scotians experience home, or wish they did. Home is not always as it seems. Or as expected. Or attainable.
Her first book of short stories, The Church of Little Bo Peep and other stories, was released in 2021. Jan’s second collection, Inquire Within, will be out summer 2022.
All books mentioned above are available from the publisher, Moose House Publications.
Her poem, “Moss Meditations” was awarded the Rita Joe Poetry Prize in the 2022 Nova Writes literary competition. Other poems were published in The Antigonish Review, and in Gathering In, an anthology published by Windywood Publishing in 2020.
Before retiring (from steady paycheques), Jan served in various careers, enterprises, pursuits, and avocations, including as arts administrator, sailing tours skipper, and employee benefits broker. She creates sculptures from Nova Scotian sandstone, is involved in the Lunenburg Art Gallery Society, and writes. She is a Member of the Writers Federation of Nova Scotia Writers’ Council.
She also likes to play golf, and drift on the lake in her small boat.
