Annette Januzzi Wick is an author, writer and community connector. She grew up in northern Ohio. She graduated from the University of Akron with a Computer Science degree yet still sighs when her phone doesn’t work. For a time, she made her home in the Pacific Northwest until firmly planting her feet in Cincinnati. When she’s not writing, she is walking Cincinnati’s fifty-two neighborhoods or finding and making connections in the community.
She is the founder Three Arch Press, and has previously published I’ll Be in the Car (2006). I’ll Have Some of Yours (2019) is based on her award-winning blog, Find You in the Sun (www.findyouinthesun.com), about a daughter's dance with her mother's dementia.
She is a contributor to HCR Manorcare's online communications. Her writings have appeared in the Alzheimer’s Association’s Cornerstone, Erma Bombeck Humor Blog, Grief Becomes You: A Narrative of Loss, and Movers and Makers, and have received awards from Writer’s Digest, National Society of Newspaper Columnists, Sinclair College, and USA Book News. When she's passionate, her work shows up on the opinion pages of the Cincinnati Enquirer.
Annette is available for speaking events, book signings and writing workshops. Visit annettejwick.com to purchase her book or learn more. I’ll Have Some of Yours is also available for order through Amazon and major distributors.
Annette is a board member of Friends of Music Hall, Cincinnati Memorial Hall Society, and is a member of Impact 100 and Over-the-Rhine Community Council.
She makes her home in Over-the-Rhine, in Cincinnati, Ohio, with her husband, and yearns for her four adult children to come home some time.
Every year, I am named in the top three or four. My friends call me the Susan Lucci (soap opera actress) of the local publication world.
Under my breath, my mantra is “please don’t let me be awarded “honorable mention.”
