Jane was born in in England, and grew up exploring the history and culture of London and surrounding counties. In the 1990â€™s she immigrated to Detroit, USA, eventually settling in South West Florida. She returned to England after a fifteen-year absence, to spend six years in the South West of England living on Exmoor. Where, inspired by the atmosphere, beautiful scenery, and the ancient history of the place, she wrote her first novel Ravens Deep. The next two books Blood & Ashes and A Memoir of Carl completed her gothic vampire trilogy.
Jane is a trained horticulturist, and spent time working and volunteering for Britainâ€™s National Trust at Exmoorâ€™s 1000-year-old Dunster Castle. Gaining more insight into the mysteries surrounding these ancient places, and having always been intrigued by the supernatural, inspiration came for, The Beekeeperâ€™s Daughter, a historical dark romance. While England and Scotland provided a backdrop for previous novels of vampires, witches, and haunted mansions, New Orleans presents the setting for her fifth novel, Whisht Hall, a multilayered thriller that combines the age-old struggle between good and evil, a tale steeped in voodoo, the culture of the deep south, and the hauntingly desolate Dartmoor.
