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.

Her debut non-fiction book, Where’s Home?, was published in the summer of 2020 by Moose House Publications. 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, published by Moose House Publications, launched August 2021. She has been published in the Chronicle Herald, The Antigonish Review, and three of her poems were included in an anthology, Gathering In, published by Windywood Publishing in October 2020. She is writing more fiction and wonders if there’s time for another non-fiction project.

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.
