I was a TV producer for 15 years and BEHIND HER BACK and WOMAN OF THE HOUR draw on this experience exploring power and sexual abuse in the TV industry. Topical! The two novels explore the turbulent life of a TV station seen through the eyes of producer Liz Lyon.
My second novel AFTER THE STORM follows an English couple who get on a small boat with two American strangers to sail to an island after knowing them less then 24 hours. It has been described as Marine Noir.
My debut novel THE LIE OF YOU is a portrait of obsession to the point of madness in which a woman tries to destroy her colleague. This is in film post-production and stars Tuppence Middleton, Rupert Graves, Lydia Wilson and Luke Roberts
My novels are published by Head of Zeus and my agent is Sheil Land: http://www.sheilland.com/jane-lythell
I live in Brighton in the UK. I moved from TV to become Deputy Director at the British Film Institute, Chief Executive of BAFTA for one year, followed by seven years at the Foreign and Commonwealth Office. I now write full time and I love to hear from readers. You can contact me here:
