Since writing The Janna Mysteries, I’ve come across some amazing pronunciations of Janna’s name. A reader’s question about it today prompts this post. As explained in Rosemary for Remembrance, when Janna was learning to talk she had difficulty pronouncing her name: Johanna. She was named after her father, John – although she didn’t know that at the time. As a child, she could only manage an elided version of her name, hence Janna, with a hard J (as in John.) But whatever you like to call her, I hope you are enjoying – or have enjoyed – this saga of a young girl’s fight for justice, identity and love!
