Hi, I’m Jan, I live and work in Newcastle-under-Lyme with my family. We have a four storey Victorian town house crammed full of the collected tourist tat of thirty one years of marriage. My husband’s an engineer and I work at Newcastle-under-Lyme College within the learning support team. I work mainly in the IT department where I support students with Specific Learning Difficulties and/or Autistic Spectrum Disorders. I write books for the pleasure of sharing the stories, not for the profit they bring and I self publish because I enjoy the process and the freedom to write what I enjoy, not to the formula required by today’s mainstream publishers. I also find the fantasy genre the most appealing because it allows you to tackle otherwise difficult subjects in a way that hopefully won’t offend anyone. If I can make you think about something other than your everyday life, then I’m happy!
