About Jane Yates
My name is Jane Yates, and I’m an author, artist and a narrator. I live in the historical City of Oxford in the UK.
Because I am dyslexic I did not start writing until I was 50 years old. I started as a cartoonist, illustrating and writing about my Springer Spaniel Mandy for a local community paper in Oxford, The Leys News, who I still write for.
I worked for several years in the Pitt Rivers a Museum in Oxford, which directly inspired me to write my first three books, the Paradox Child series.
My other books are Octopus Pirate and Garden which is published by Autumn Orchard and is Amazon’s #1 Children's Steampunk Bestseller. Also In audio read by Actress Anna Parker-Naples.
After the death of my dog Mandy, I had problem’s sleeping and discovered that there was not enough support after the loss of a beloved pet. I decided to make an audio that would help other people who found themselves in the same situation.
It is called RELAX: Guided meditation to aid sleep, after the loss of a beloved dog. It has only been out a short time but is already receiving good reviews.
