About this author

Jane Costello is the Top Ten best-selling author of seven novels including Bridesmaids, The Wish List and her latest book, The Time Of Our Lives.

Jane was a full-time journalist before she became an author, working on titles including the Liverpool Echo (where she started as a graduate trainee), the Daily Mail, and the Liverpool Daily Post, where she was Editor for almost five years.

She wrote her first novel, Bridesmaids, while on maternity leave and, as well as becoming a bestseller, it was a Heatseeker number one and nominated for the Melissa Nathan Award for Comedy Romance.

She followed that up with The Nearly-Weds, which won the RNA’s Romantic Comedy award in 2010. Since then, her books have been translated into seventeen languages.

“I've come to learn that determination only gets you so far in life when you're completely devoid of ability.”
Jane Costello, The Wish List

“He's wearing my favourite shirt – otherwise known as The Sexiest Shirt Known to Man, an item of clothing that emphasises every contour of his torso. When he smiles tonight, his whole face is luminous – quite an achievement, given it's so dark I nearly asked if they had the cocktail menu in Braille.”
Jane Costello, The Wish List

“Oh, well, that's not bad, I suppose. I mean, I'd prefer devastatingly sophisticated - but almost endearing is more than I could have hoped for under the circumstances.”
Jane Costello, The Nearly Weds
