More About Jan Karon & Melanie Cecka

Jan Karon Born Janice Meredith Wilson in 1937, Jan Karon was raised on a farm near Lenoir, North Carolina. Karon knew at a very early age that she wanted to be a writer. She penned her first novel when she was just 10 years old, the same year she won a shirt-story contest organized by the local highschool.

Karon married as a teenager and hand a daughter, Candace. At 18, Karon began working as a receptionist for a Charlotte, N.C. advertising agency. She advanced in the company after leaving samples of her writing on the desk of her boss, who eventually noticed her talent. Karon went on to have a highly successful career in the field, winning awards for ad agencies from Charlotte to San Francisco. In time, she became a creative vice president at the high-profile McKinney & Silver, in Raleigh. Wile there she won the prestigious Stephen Kelly Award, with which the Magazine Publishers of America honor the year's best print campaign.

During her hears in advertising, Karon kept alive her childhood ambition to be an author. At the age of 50 she left her career in advertising and moved to Blowing Rock, North Carolina, to pursue that dream. After struggling - and failing - to get a novel underway, Karon awoke one night with a mental image of an Episcopal priest walking down a village street. She grew curious about him, and started writing. Soon, Karon was publishing weekly installments about Father Tim in her local newspaper, the The Blowing Rocket, which saw its circulation double as a result. "It certainly worked for Mr. Dickens", says Karon.

The Father Tim stories became Karon's first Mitford novel, At Home in Mitford. The book has since been nominated three times for an ABBY (American Booksellers Book Of the Year Award), which honors titles that bookstore owners most enjoy recommending to customers. The fourth Mitford novel, A New Song, won both the Christy and Gold Medallion awards for outstanding contemporary fiction in 2000. A Common Life, In This Mountain, and Shepherd's Abiding have also won Gold Medallion awards. Out to Canaan was the first Mitford novel to hit the New York Times bestseller list, subsequent novels have debuted on the New York Times list, often landing the #1 spot.

Karon says her character-driven work seeks to give readers a large, extended family they can call their own.

Jan Karon currently resides in Blowing Rock, in the state of North Carolina. Jan Karon was born in 1937.

Exceptional Children's Literature!  Mar 11, 2010
I just bought this book yesterday for my 4-year old. It's just what I have been looking for!! It is foremost grounded in the values with which I am raising my children. It also is a sweet story with excellent read-aloud vocabulary--not overly simplified vocabulary commonly found in children's litreature. The illustrations are beautilful and peaceful.

Alice and her pet cat, Violet, are from the city. They visit Alice's aunt and uncle, who live in the country. The story gently gaptures the reader's interest as poor Violet innocently gets into various kinds of mischief. Unfortunately, it is Uncle Leo, who "was never much of a cat person", who keeps getting inconvenienced by Violet's mishaps.

I couldn't be more pleased to have discovered this book. My daughter, who has shelves of quality books, pronounced this to be her favorite book. It's an overall feel good book written by an extremely gifted author.

Thank you, Ms. Karon!!
Great Follow-up To Violet Comes To Stay  Feb 18, 2010
My daughter loves cats so Violet Comes To Stay was great. This next book is wonderful too.
It has vivid pictures and a nice story line. In Violet Goes To The Country, we learn that
curiosity can get a cat in a world of trouble even though her heart is in the right place.
It express a message of loving people as they are, like the grumpy Uncle.
This book has been read multiple times already in our house and I think you will love it too.
Violet Goes to the Country  Feb 16, 2009

Violet Goes to the Country  Feb 15, 2009
I am a huge Jan Karon fan, having read the entire Mitford series, and looking forward to her new book coming out soon.

I purchased her children's books for my "Grandma's hope chest." It is a wonderful book for children and the illustrations are magnificent. I am delighted to say that I will soon become a grandmother and I can't wait to be able to read this book to my granddaughter one day.

I highly recommend it.
Very sweet book; not just for children  Feb 2, 2009
I don't have children but thought this book was very sweet and has a wonderful message for everyone, not just for children. The illustrations are lovely. If you love cats, you will want to have a copy of this book.
