On the same day of his disappearance, the body of six year old John William Hampton was discovered not far from his home. His father, Joe Hampton was tried and convicted of his son’s murder. The prosecution had made strong allegations that the child’s mother, Mary Lynn, had been aware of previous abuse. After the sentencing of Joe Hampton, the judge added: “To assure the safety of the Hampton’s four year old child, Molly Jane, I’m removing her from her mother’s care. Custody will be granted to her maternal aunt, Laura Wilson, and Ted Wilson who I understand to be in good standing with the courts.” As the crowd dispersed, Laura said to her sister, “I will see to it that Molly Jane is safe – like you should have done for John William.” Mary Lynn wholeheartedly believing in her husband’s innocence, and denying all allegations of abuse, says to reporters, as cameras flash: “I will find the murderer of my son and when the truth is known, Joe and Molly Jane will come home to me.”

Janis Anderson Yelton refers to all of her books as being "easy reads," meaning they are fast moving stories written strictly to entertain.
"There will be no page skipping in my books," the author proclaims. "Each page contains needed information without a lot of unnecessary and lengthy descriptions. Too often we hear people say: 'The book started off a little slow.' or 'I'm finally to the last chapter.' Put that book down if you're not enjoying it. A good book grabs you from the start, and if it doesn't, why continue to read it?" Janis asks.
"I equate finishing a book you're not enjoying to eating everything on your plate because somewhere someone is hungry. Doing either helps no one. Besides, there are so many good books just waiting to be enjoyed!"
So many books ... so little time!
How Janis began to write is a story in itself.
In 1997, Janis was diagnosed with Parkinson's disease, but she believes that along with this hardship came a "gift - creativity." She suddenly became interested in sketching, painting, and a "driven" interest in writing mysteries.
Janis and her husband questioned doctors as to why this sudden change; suggesting the creative side of her brain was working harder to compensate for the diseased portion. Although that could be the case, no one knew for sure. What they did know was she was one of many, diagnosed with Parkinson's disease, to experience an increased interest in new endeavors.
Researchers today surmise approximately 20% of Parkinson's disease patients experience a strong (and sometimes obsessive) new interest and suspects it originates with much-needed medications being used to treat this disease's devastating symptoms.
Janis had her first book published in 2003; but soon after her Parkinson's (a progrssive disease) advanced to the point that it effected her everday life and halted her ability to write.
Then in September 2010, almost miraculously, a small group of late stage Parkinson's patients were recruited to participate in a research study at the University of Cincinnati Medical Center in Ohio. Janis was the second woman in the United States chosen to participate.
This on-going study is seeking FDA approval for a new medication delivery system. Wearing a pump, and a tube surgically-placed through the wall of her small intestine, Janis' brain is being continually supplied with the chemical it lacks.
This delivery system virtually eliminated her Parkinson's symptoms. "Voila!" Janis has her life back. She is no longer in constant pain. She can dress herself again, ride a bike again ... she can write books again.
