Janet Southall Connell grew up in Mobile, Alabama.  Her interest as of late has been about science and spirituality, and how the two seemingly different topics are alike.

Her formal education consisted of a bachelor’s degree in biology education, a master’s degree in counselor education and graduate-level work in Biology from the University of South Alabama.

She currently resides in a small community across the bay from Mobile, which she considers to be a little piece of heaven.  She has two daughters and two granddaughters.
