Reading Gives You Wings to Fly!


Janice Spina aka Jemsbooks is an award-winning author with several books for children and adults of all ages. She is working toward publication of all her books.

Janice is excited to continue to bring more fun and imaginative stories for children written in rhyme with life lessons that instill and promote good behavior in children.

It is extremely important that parents spend time with their children and read daily to them. Once children are able to read have them read to you. You will both be richly rewarded by this wonderful experience and time spent together.

Children love Jemsbooks because they are creative with adorable animal characters that come to life and make children laugh and enjoy reading them while at the same time learning valuable life lessons.

Janice wants to inspire children to read. Her motto is Reading Gives You Wings to Fly! Join her in her writing and publishing adventures, peruse the pages of this site and read her blog to find out what she is writing and when it will be published. Be one of the first to purchase one or more of her books. 

More books coming in 2016 and 2017.

New paranormal/mystery/romance, How Far Is Heaven, and Book 3 of Davey & Derek Junior Detectives Series is now here! Also, Janice is working on Book 4 of Davey & Derek Junior Detectives Series. She expects to complete this middle-grade book later this year. New children's book about a cat also coming soon.

Another novel, a mystery/romance is in its early stages as is a YA fantasy which will be a series, and a mystery series for middle-grade girls will be written next year. Look for all these in 2017.
