Hailed by The Bookseller as ‘One to Watch’, Jane Davis is the author of eight novels.
Jane spent her twenties and the first half of her thirties chasing promotions in the business world, but when she achieved what she’d set out to do, she discovered that it wasn’t what she wanted after all. It was then that she turned to writing.
After her first novel, Half-Truths and White Lies, won an award which was established with the aim of finding ‘the next Joanne Harris’, it took Jane a little while to work out that all she really wanted to be was a slightly shinier version of herself.
Seven further novels, which straddle contemporary, historical, literary and women’s fiction genres, have earned her comparisons to authors such as Kate Atkinson, Maggie O’Farrell and Jodi Picoult. An Unknown Woman, was Writing Magazine’s Self-Published Book of the Year 2016. Jane's favourite description of fiction is ‘made-up truth’.
Jane lives in Carshalton, Surrey, in what she describes as ‘a totally impractical money-pit of a house’, with her Formula 1 obsessed, beer-brewing partner, who would be considerably happier if she hadn’t turned the dining room table into a writing desk.
When she isn’t writing, you may spot Jane disappearing up the side of a mountain in the Lake District with a camera in hand.
