Janet Fisher was born in Birmingham. Babies, house-moves and illness always got in the way of a career, so in desperation she started writing poetry. For twenty years she co-ran The Poetry Business, and now spends most of her time either in an armchair or on her Apple computer playing Brickshooter. She is alsocompleting an MA in Creative Writing at Manchester Metropolitan University.
Her collection, Life and Other Terms, is due to be published in July 2015 by Shoestring Press.
