Jane Jago lives in the beautiful westcountry with her large dog and her favourite husband (yes, he's large too).
She spent half her working life cooking, and the other half editing other people's manuscripts. Both these occupations seemed to take up a large proportion of her waking moments, leaving little or no time for the stories that filled her imagination.
But time moves on and it became possible to squeeze out the odd hour here and there to get some words onto 'paper'. The Long Game took nearly two years to write, principally because the characters kept doing unexpected things requiring rewrite after rewrite.
Since then, Jane has learned that the story as it begins in her head is unlikely to bear very much resemblance to the finished book.
Equally, she has learned to enjoy the journey, as her characters take her to places she never knew existed while they play out their lives on the page in front of her.
