About the Book

Janis began writing poetry in earnest after her first poem was published in an anthology in 1994 at age seventy- two. Following this, several of her poems were published in different anthologies through the years where she received numerous editors’ choice awards.

The spiritual nature of Janis’ poems reflects her deep religious faith. In 1998, a book of her inspirational poems and selected Bible verses, “In HIS Care,” was published as a fiftieth anniversary remembrance. In 1999, singer Jody Murphy selected a poem, He Is Real, from this book to sing and record in Nashville, TN.

Afterwards, Janis was selected for Marquis Who’s Who in the South and Southwest, Silver 25th Edition, Marquis Who’s Who in America, 52nd Edition, and Dictionary of International Biography, 26th Edition. She was elected to the International Poetry Hall of Fame in 1996.

Janis Bolton was born July 28, 1922 in Pineville, KY to Clyde Herman and Violet Hendrickson Bolton. She married Kenneth C. Drinnon June 13, 1948 and had one daughter, Dena Daryl Drinnon.

She was educated in Harrogate, TN elementary school, Middlesboro, KY high school, Lincoln Memorial University, Harrogate, journalism classes, and Newspaper Institute of America correspondence courses. While attending college, Janis wrote articles for local newspapers.

Janis has enjoyed a fulfilling versatile life in the arts as evidenced by the following: As a young teenager, she sang solos on children’s radio programs at WNOX in Knoxville, TN and sang in university and church choirs. She organized a drama department then produced and directed religious plays for Alice Bell Baptist Church, Knoxville, TN. And now, she is publishing her poetry book “He IS Real,” that contains many of her inspirational poems and selected Bible verses.
