BWS 12.01.22: Jane Woods 

Jane Woods was born in Cleveland, Ohio. She grew up in Montreal and is a graduate of the National Theatre School of Canada. She has worked extensively as a voice actor and a translator. She lives in Toronto.

As everyone in the same boat knows, having a book come out during a pandemic poses no end of sticky challenges. With the doors shut tight against a frightening world, it’s just you, your mewling little newborn novel, and any harebrained promotional ideas you can dream up.

This homegrown video came about as a pandemic project, a way to stave off despair (oh, so much despair!) My talented collaborators and I tried to condense Running Downhill Like Water into graphics, music, and snippets of text so as to give a brief—and, I hope, intriguing— taste of the book’s characters and themes.

It was good, nail-biting fun to make, and I’m so pleased to have the chance to post it here!

Jane Woods visits Brockton Writers Series via our YouTube channel on Wednesday, January 12, 2022 starting at 6:30pm alongside Jessica Westhead, Becky Blake, and Hollay Ghadery . Our guest speaker Nadia L. Hohn gives us, “Writing Kidlit in a Nutshell.”
