About Jan

I am an Eric Hoffer Award winning author for exceptional writing.

I also blog about hyper ears and my macabre horror fiction stories including free quick reads (flash fiction 50 – 1500 words).

I’ve had hyper ears [tinnitus and hyperacusis] since 1986, and am an audiologist and educator. I wrote the best-selling Tinnitus Treatment Toolbox (2010, 2012) describing tinnitus and hyperacusis coping tools and how to use them from free self-help to professional therapy approaches. 2017 version in progress.

I’ve stalked Hyper Ears World for over 30 years. Something can be done. I’ve turned into a hyper ears activist, trying to raise awareness about hyper ears, coping tools and problems that need fixing for our community.

I live in the Pacific Northwest of Canada with my family, two dogs and two cats. I like deadheading, needlework and eating cookies.
