Jane Woods
I was born in Cleveland, Ohio, and my family moved to Montreal when I was twelve. I'm a graduate of the National Theatre School of Canada, and spent my twenties working in Canadian regional theatre, most notably at Ottawa`s National Arts Centre, playing Rebecca in James Reaney's The Killdeer. I then settled permanently in Montreal, and completed a BFA degree in Integrative Music Studies at Concordia University. I sang for two years with the Montreal Jubilation Gospel Choir, while also building a career as a voice actress. My voice has wafted through many a home over these past few decades, speaking out of any number of animated faces; to choose only two, I was the voice of Little Lulu on The Little Lulu Show, and of the zany grandma Yaya on Wimzie's House. Many, many hundreds of voice-overs and commercials later, I began translating and adapting French-language films and television series to be dubbed into English. Among them were the highly acclaimed series Blanche, starring Pascale Bussières, and Omertà, with Michel Coté. Now, I live in Toronto, which is where I began writing The Walking Tanteek nine years ago.
