Janis Anderson Yelton brings a compelling and thought-provoking murder mystery in “Saving Molly Jane Hampton”. The book tackles the murder of a six-year-old boy, John William, and the consequences surrounding it, including the safety of Molly Jane from the abuser/murderer.

Mary Lynn and Joe Hampton are a happily married couple with two children, John William and his four-year-old sister, Molly Jane. Next door lives Mary Lynn’s older sister, Laura, and her husband, Ted Wilson. Laura and Ted are unable to have children. This is why they doted on Molly Jane and John William.

At school, John William is scolded because he keeps squirming in his chair. He says that “his bottom hurt.” With this, he is sent to the school nurse. He is asked about it but feels terribly upset. The school involves the authorities and a doctor to examine John William. This is how they discover that the six-year-old child has been sexually abused.

One day, John William’s body is discovered. His father, Joe Hampton, is tried and convicted of his son’s murder. His mother, Mary Lynn, is suspected of having prior knowledge of her son’s abuse but denies all the allegations. His four-year-old sister, Molly Jane, is taken into her Aunt Laura’s custody.

Did Joe Hampton murder his son? Will Molly Jane be safe in her aunt’s care? Is there a murderer amongst them?

Author’s Biography

Janis Anderson Yelton enjoys writing mysteries, describing her books as “easy reads,” meaning she writes fast moving stories without lengthy or unnecessary descriptions.

“There will be no page skipping in my books,” Janis declares. “My goal is to entertain and if my readers are paging ahead, I’ve missed my mark.”

“If you’re reading a book that you say ’started off slow,’ or ’will be glad when finished reading,’ PUT THAT BOOK DOWN. Finishing a book that you’re not enjoying is about as helpful as eating everything on your plate to help someone in the world who is starving. Besides, there are so many new authors with good books just waiting to be read! Read a book’s back cover; if it’s a good book, it should grab onto you from the start. So many books … so little time!”

How Janis began to write is a story in itself.

In 1997, Janis she was diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease. But along with this devastating diagnosis, Janis received a “gift”- the gift of creativity. She suddenly became interested in sketching, painting, and a ”driven" interest in writing books - all completely new endeavors.

Janis and her husband questioned her doctors as to the reason for her new interests, wondering if perhaps a portion of her brain was working harder to compensate. Doctors were unsure; but what they did know was Janis was just one of many diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease to report this.

Researchers today surmise 20% of Parkinson’s disease patients experience new interests (sometimes obsessively). They now understand it comes from the much-needed medications used to treat this disease’s devastating symptoms.

Janis had her first book published in 2003; but soon after, Parkinson’s (a progressive disease) had advanced to the point that it affected her everday life and halted her ability to write.

Then in September 2010, almost miraculously, a very small group (seventy-one world wide) of late stage Parkinson’s candidates were recruited to participate in a research study at the University of Cincinnati Medical Center in Ohio, and Janis was chosen.

The Duopa pump received FDA approval for this 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 an artificial form of (dopamine) the chemical it lacks.

This delivery system has slowed her disease, reducing the pain and rigidity.

Janis was raised in Kentucky, where she and her husband Don, continue to reside. They have five grown children, nine grandchildren and one great grandson.
