Janet Foxley (1944-)grew up in various towns in the north of England and studied German at the universities of Newcastle and Erlangen (Bavaria). After marrying a Londoner she lived in the south-east of England for twenty-five years, first as a full-time mother and later as an administrator at Royal Holloway, University of London.
Janet has written as a hobby for most of her life, but since she retired writing has become her 'day job'. Her children have long since left home and she now lives in a former farmhouse in Cumbria with her husband Donald, an engineer-turned-sculptor.
