ABOUT THE AUTHOR
Janey Bennett grew up in San Diego, the daughter of an English professor whose love of literature shaped Janey’s early life. She graduated from UCLA and has enjoyed colourful and varied careers, from radio announcer to horse trainer and drama critic. She spent five winters teaching English to Buddhist nuns in Thailand. Her writings on architecture have been published in the United States and Finland, where she held a Fulbright research fellowship. She has been writing fiction for eight years.
THE PALE SURFACE OF THINGS is Bennett’s first novel, leading her into the study of classical Greek, Byzantine icon painting, geology, botany, the vernacular architecture and sociology of Greek villages, Minoan culture and art, the science of archaeology, World War II on Crete, and criminal law in Greece. A cellist, freelance editor, and author, Bennett divides her time between Bellingham, WA and Hornby Island, BC.
