When Janet O'Kane outgrew Enid Blyton's books she moved on to what her Mum liked reading: crime novels. And despite occasional dalliances with other types of fiction, that's where she has happily stayed.
Her career before turning to writing full-time included selling underpants to Roger Moore in Harrods of Knightsbridge and marketing nappies for Boots the Chemist. It was when she helped run a GP surgery that she decided a doctor would make an excellent main character for a series of crime novels.
Janet lives in the Scottish Borders with her stonemason husband, a cat, two dogs and far too many chickens. She is now working on the sequel to No Stranger to Death and learning to tap-dance.
