Janet Houck

Professional Manga Adaptation and Editing

Freelance Manga and Anime Journalist

Hi there!

Welcome to the online portfolio of me, Janet Houck, Denver-based adaptation writer and editor. On this website, you'll find a list of completed and in-progress projects, and be able to see what people are saying about my works, both past and current. I've also included a short biography, and contact information for interested potential clients. My specialty is supernatural and historical-based fiction, although my portfolio spans romance ("Kashimashi") to action ("Gunslinger Girl") to drama ("Boogiepop"). As a jack of all trades, my trivia knowledge and skills are diverse, giving my clients someone who is willing to go beyond the text I'm handed to give the reader the best experience possible. My primary goal is to ensure that the author's message is clearly conveyed to the reader, presenting an experience that is authentic to the work in its orignal, native environment. A graduate of Queens' University in English Language and Literature, there's no job too big or small for my talents!

Please feel free to browse this website, and be sure to check out my books online or in your local bookstore. If you like what you see, and have need of someone with my particular skill set, please look at my CV for my prior work history and contact information. Don't forget to follow me on Twitter, Facebook, or on Google+. I'm always looking to meet new and interesting people! Thanks for visiting this website, and please come again to keep up to date with my works at Fading Shadows!.
