Book Nerd Interview
Janet lives near the Canadian Rockies with her husband and son and a little dog named Bruce. She does not live in an Igloo or play hockey, but she does love maple syrup and says “eh” a lot.
Janet only gives 5 stars to the books she reviews because she is an author herself and knows that no book can appeal to everyone, but like a child, it is very special to the creator.
I’M NOT HER was published by Sourcebooks Teen Fire in May 2011.
IF I TELL released Oct 1, 2011 from Sourcebooks Teen Fire.
WHO I KISSED Sourcebooks Fire 2012.
Janet’s work will also appear in the THE FIRST TIME anthology, DEAR TEEN ME anthology and WHO DONE IT anthology.
"[A] romantic road-trip story . . . [with a] theme that one's expectations rarely match up with life's realities. " - Publishers Weekly
"Peppering her prose with tweets and texts, Gurtler contrasts the quick appeal of casual online friendships with the lasting satisfaction of giving the same attention to real relationships...Morgan's emotional journey is nonetheless an honest one." - Booklist
"This is a timely, relevant, and touching story for the so-called digital natives. Highly Recommended." - Library Media Connection
Top Ten List - Your favorite guy characters from your books, including random facts about them.
1. Nick from I’m Not Her- bad boy who wants to be good.
2. Clark Trent from I’m Not Her- so nice. Nickname is Superman
3. Steve Blender- How I Lost You- the bad boy who really is BAD. He shows up in my next book The Truth About Us and he’s even WORSE. I love to hate him
4. James from How I Lost You- he’s such a nice geeky guy and so in love with the wrong person. The nice guy who is your friend, but wants to be more. Awwwwww.
5. Zack from Waiting To Score- The boy I was supposed to date in high school. Plays hockey like good Canadian boys do.
6. Jackson in IF I TELL- Hot. Good. Bi-racial and proud.
7. Adam from 16 Things. Originally his name was Riker.
8. Jake from 16 Things. A cool brother and a super cool guy.
9. Alex from Who I Kissed- he dies in the third chapter
10. Zee from Who I Kissed- a swimmer. So conflicted about Sam.
Heart attacks happen to other people #thingsIthoughtweretrue
When Morgan’s mom gets sick, it’s hard not to panic. Without her mother, she would have no one—until she finds out the dad who walked out on her as a baby isn’t as far away as she thought…
Adam is a stuck-up, uptight jerk #thingsIthoughtweretrue
Now that they have a summer job together, Morgan’s getting to know the real Adam, and he’s actually pretty sweet…in a nerdy-hot kind of way. He even offers to go with her to find her dad. Road trip, anyone?
5000 Twitter followers are all the friends I need #thingsIthoughtweretrue
With Adam in the back seat, a hyper chatterbox named Amy behind the wheel, and plenty of Cheetos to fuel their trip, Morgan feels ready for anything. She’s not expecting a flat tire, a missed ferry, a fake girlfriend…and that these two people she barely knew before the summer started will become the people she can’t imagine living without.
