Melanie Johnson and Jenn Foster, owners of Elite Online Publishing, interview Jana Phillips about the writing and publishing process of a fiction book.
A native Texan, Jana Laird Phillips has lived in Dallas, Washington DC and has now called Houston home for over 24 years. She has a BBA from Baylor University with a double major in Marketing and Journalism. After graduating, she began her career writing in the energy industry, publishing numerous articles in trade journals. When Jana made Houston her permanent home, she instantly loved the welcoming community that gives the large city its small-town feel. The wonderful businesses, events, arts and charities of Houston inspired Jana to launch Houston Hip & Haute, a lifestyle blog on all things Houston where she remains both the founder and publisher. Jana is proud to be involved with organizations such as the Junior League of Houston, American Red Cross and American Heart Association. In her free time, Jana enjoys shopping at local Houston boutiques, dining at delicious restaurants and visiting museums and galleries.
