Janet Uhlar was born in Quincy, Massachusetts--the hometown of John Adams, John Quincy Adams, John Hancock, and Josiah Quincy, Jr.
Janet served as a juror in the 2013 trial of mob boss, James (Whitey) J. Bulger. She has extensive knowledge of the foundational principles of American law and is the author of several books on the American Revolution. She believed Bulger's trial was in stark violation of these principles. Determined to discover the truth, she encountered corruption involving the FBI, DOJ, and CIA. Her communications with Bulger have revealed information never disclosed.
Through her works of biographical-fiction, she hopes to present the extraordinary stories of forgotten heroes of the American Revolution.
Janet firmly believes that when the private lives and unique personalities of historical figures are presented, and the dynamics between these characters brought out, history becomes much more than cold black print on a stark white page. History takes on a life of its own, with true flesh and blood individuals whose acts of courage, indifference, or cowardice shaped the world we live in today. This living history helps us relate to those who have gone before--offering inspiration, courage, and a sense of determination. She lives on Cape Cod in Massachusetts.
