Five on Five Magazine is the official magazine of the WFTDA, the Women's Flat-Track Roller Derby Association. When I was skating with the Rockford Rage, I wrote an inspiring article about the accessibility of roller derby to all body types and experience levels. That picture is of me, in my Travel Team gear. Sexy, I know. Try to control yourselves. 

Articles & Etc.


Be sure to check out my blog! I hope to keep it up-to-date with book reviews, writing tips, musings on geek culture and life, as well as articles of general interest. Ambitious, no?

Coming soon, baby. Coming soon. 


Janice Fosse has skated on a roller derby team, sang in a women’s barbershop quartet, once yelled at Chris Farley for smoking a cigar, and some of her DNA is on Mars (no, really). Growing up in a large family full of interesting people and legendary stories inspired Janice to lead a life as full of varied experiences and adventures as possible. A graduate of Augustana College with a BFA in theater performance and another BA in English with a creative writing concentration, Janice has been a storyteller all her life, whether through acting, the act of writing, or simply embellishing a memory into a legend in the retelling.


Fed on a steady diet of science fiction and speculative stories, Janice has always preferred the expanse of her imagination to the confines of everyday life, and has built fantastic fictional worlds that now live in storage tubs in her basement. She can honestly say she has lost at least one job due in part to her writing addiction, and has finally decided to give in to her calling and try to get paid for the thing she spent most of her time doing at her previous jobs, anyway.
