Author of Milele Safari, Jan has a print and web publication background (primarily with the Ministry of Justice and some association with HMSO) and a BA in Graphic Design.

Jan lives near Launceston, in Cornwall, UK with husband Peter, and Toby and Benji the Springer Spaniels. It's a tie between the boys as to who's maddest, but as Jan outranks all of them in being weird anyway, it's really not open to debate. They all love their home, mainly because it was chosen for being so quiet and off the beaten track, very close to Bodmin Moor and a short drive to the north Cornish coast.

Jan also loves books, both to write and to read, the latter of which can get very eclectic (she enjoys Julian Barnes, Kate Atkinson, Jeanette Winterson, and will happily admit to Jilly Cooper too). However, in the main she's heavily into sci-fi and fantasy, particularly some of the Gothic Horror classics, Asimov, Tolkien, Terry Pratchett and Julian May, although Zombie Apocalypses are fairly easily passed on . . .
