Sarah Jane Weldon is a British author with a passion for cozy mysteries. On an average day you'll find her working on the set of a new mystery series for film or television, writing a cozy mystery screenplay, ice swimming in Antarctica as she comes up with a plot twist, or sat in her favourite chair by the fire, killing off a character.
Sarah Jane Weldon isn't a fan of her middle name 'Jane' (she's prefers to be called Sarah) but readers looking for her cozy mysteries and Bertram Bile time travel adventure series for middle-grade were finding themselves on the page of another author who wrote hot and steamy books. So she added her middle name, instead of coming up with a pen name.
Sarah is a lover of cats, and even her Italian Greyhound is more cat-like than your average dog, preferring to stay under the duvet or basking in a spot of sunshine.
Sarah regularly works with schools through Skype in the Classroom, School Speakers, as a STEM Ambassador, and through her environmental and STEM education charity Oceans Project. In 2014 Microsoft Education named Sarah as a 'woman changing the world through technology' for International Women's Day. A percentage of Sarah's book royalties supports Oceans Project's work (UK readers can support Oceans Project too by shopping on Amazon Smile), reaching and promoting literacy to around 100,000 students worldwide each year, including those denied education due to gender, poverty, war, natural disaster, or disability. Sarah is a Fellow of the Royal Geographical Society in London, and a member of the Explorer's Club in New York.
