Former student Janet Clare has just published her debut novel, Time Is the Longest Distance. Set in the harsh desert of the Australian outback it is a moral story of immorality in a place where “night comes on like a door slamming shut.”

Of the influence the Writers’ Program had on her book, Janet says, “Without question, it is because of the late, irreplaceable, Les Plesko and the UCLA Extension Writers’ Program that this book exists and that I continue to write.”

Congratulations, Janet! If you have a success story, we want to hear about it! Click here.
