About Janet Isaacs Ashford
I am a freelance writer, artist and musician living in Mendocino, California. I was born in Los Angeles, California and received a B.A. in Psychology from the University of California at Los Angeles.
Since 1983, I've written two books on alternative childbirth (The Whole Birth Catalog and Birth Stories: The Experience Remembered) and seven on computer graphics, including Start with a Scan and The Arts and Crafts Computer. All are currently out of print, but used copies can be found online. Some of my teaching materials on the history of childbirth are available here.
I played classical music in many orchestras during my school years and since then have played in several folk bands including Lime in the Harp and Los Californios in San Diego and Calliope Creek in Mendocino. Our album, Another Jig Will Do, is for sale at Gallery Bookshop in Mendocino and at the Point Cabrillo Lighthouse in Caspar.
My photographs of the Mendocino coast are for sale as greeting cards at Gallery Bookshop and the Ford House in Mendocino and at Racine's in Fort Bragg, CA.
