Jan Cline


JAN CLINE is a firm believer in late bloomers. She began her writing journey at a young age, but didn’t venture into fiction writing until 2009 when a friend dared her to write a novel. Her love for relics and history pointed her to America’s untold stories of the 1930s and 40s, and her first published novel, Emancipated Heart, tells the story of a Japanese-American family living in an internment camp during WW2.

For Jan, researching is just as fun as putting pen to paper, especially when it requires travel to places she’s never been. Her current women’s fiction series, American Dreams, takes readers from the dust bowl years of America’s heartlands through WW2.

In addition to her creative writing credits, which include feature articles, devotionals, anthologies, and a women’s self-help book, Jan has served as a writers conference director and enjoys teaching at conferences and writers groups.

Jan lives in northern Idaho with her husband and spoiled dog. Connect with Jan online at:

All My Goodbyes

American Dreams, Book 2

Christian Historical Fiction

Spring, 1941

Europe’s troubles were far away and not of concern to Martha Watkins. The United States was neutral, and the last war had claimed enough American lives. If war did come, Martha declared, she would never settle down with a soldier. “I’m not interested in anyone enlisting to go off to war.”

Clarissa Wilding paled at the thought. “James will be of age soon. Knowing him, he would enlist, just so he could fly a plane.”Then came the day that would live in infamy, and the call to duty threatens to tear all their hopes of happiness apart.

The Pruning

Clarissa Wilding and her family have just arrived at the train station in Kennewick, Washington. Their decision to move from the drought and dust storms on the Kansas plains seemed like a good one, until Clarissa sees her husband Frank embrace his half-brother William. Clarissa knows this man, but by a different name. And it is obvious that William also recognizes her, though he says nothing of their past together.


 …this strong series launch will appeal to fans of Janette Oke.
