JANET HETHERINGTON Comics are a way of life for Janet Hetherington (www.best-destiny.com). While Janet studied Journalism at Carleton University in Ottawa, Canada, and currently works as an editor with a government agency and writes for Animation World Network, she has been cartooning since she was old enough to hold a pencil.
Prior to MONSTER LOVE, Janet wrote, drew and self-published ETERNAL ROMANCE, a supernatural comic book series that parodied 1950s-70s love comics and earned a place in Trina Robbins' book, The Great Women Cartoonists. Janet currently has a contemporary romance story in GIRLS DRAWN WILD (Happy Harbor Comics), a new anthology published to benefit women in crisis. Janet also wrote ELVIRA, MISTRESS OF THE DARK (Claypool Comics) for six years. Janet has frequently collaborated with artist Ronn Sutton on a number of projects, including JANNIE WEEZIE (daily newspaper strip, Ottawa Citizen), SPINNERETTE (Millennium Comics), PERF & GAUGE (Canada Post), FIVE ALARM CHARLIE (Sky-Dog) and numerous ELVIRA stories. Janet received Canada's Aurora Award for excellence in science fiction and fantasy in 1999. Janet is working on several screenplays, but comics are her passion, so Janet is very excited that MONSTER LOVE is a contender in the 2008 Comic Book Challenge!
