Last year Jane was highly commended for a short story competition in aid of Words for the Wounded. This evocative piece called The Marcasite Brooch, together with more free tales can be found on the short stories page. She has also been featured in the media and on radio, click press page/links page.
Having discovered her writing voice through short story writing and inspirational mentoring, Jane has now published two novels. The most recent is Ruby’s New Coat is a dramatic tale of romance and intrigue set in wartime Europe. Her first Pandora’s Box, a modern love story set in Greece, also received good reviews was published in 2013 . Both are currently available in both Kindle and paperback formats.
Her comments after publishing Pandora’s Box were: “It was very exciting to hold the first physical copy, it was almost as good as holding one’s new born for the first time.” She looks forward to the next christening and hope people enjoy her style of writing.
