FERNANDINA BEACH, Fla. – In her new memoir, Janie's Unbelievable Journey: Inspirational Letters Along the Way, Florida author Janie Wilkins shares her incredible true story of life as a wife, mother, and educator.

She is a lifelong educator with a host of experiences and accomplishments. Growing up in rural north Louisiana, the daughter of a mail carrier, Wilkins went on to attend Louisiana Tech University and was the first student in Louisiana Tech's history to graduate with certification in library science and as president of Tech's first library club. She also earned a B.A. in English and social studies from Louisiana Tech University.

In her career, she has touched many lives through classroom instruction in English and social studies and by setting up numerous public school libraries in Brevard County, Florida. In her free time, she continued her investment in children by becoming one of World Book Encyclopedia's best sales representatives in the south. She was presented the keys to the city of Dallas for her outstanding World Book sales as a teacher representative.

Wilkins says the book is a legacy for her children and grandchildren—a piece of history recorded through photos, letters, and narrative to shine the spotlight on a successful, full life

Published by Tate Publishing and Enterprises, the book is available through bookstores nationwide, from the publisher at www.tatepublishing.com/bookstore, or by visiting barnesandnoble.com or amazon.com.

Active in the Methodist church, Wilkins has followed John Wesley's "call to serve" and has been a shepherd, participating in church missions, leading Sunday school classes and divorce recovery classes. She has also been an active citizen, working polls in local, state, and national elections. Her proudest accomplishments by far are her three adult children: Linda, Tommy, and Eric.
