Über den Autor und weitere Mitwirkende
Trained in fashion design at London’s Ealing Art School, Jan first began working for the House of Worth in Mayfair, London in 1958. She then moved on to wholesale fashion as the designer’s assistant for Slimma. Marriage to an army officer in 1961 took her to Germany for three fascinating years. Later, back in civilian life they moved to Singapore; “another amazing experience”, she says, which has proved valuable ‘grist’ to her writing ‘mill’. After moving to Yorkshire in 1972, she later went through a painful divorce and survived 6 years with two kiddies as a one parent family - a tough period, from which she has drawn in her fiction writing. After managing a fashion boutique in Wakefield, Yorkshire for 2 years, her last position for several years was sales rep for a top designer spectacle frame company, until redundancy finally allowed Jan to pursue her writing ambition. She has a daughter Jayne, son Justin, and two granddaughters Abby and Alexia. Now happily married to Mark for 35 years, they live in a converted barn in rural Yorkshire. In the past Jan has successfully sold various articles and short stories to UK magazines, but longer book length fiction has been her main interest for many years.
