I write adult romantic comedies, with a dash of magic and a huge helping of fabulous international settings. My Magic Romance series can be read in order, or as standalones.

I'm an avid traveller, and spend part of each year on the road. I've lived in Tokyo, London, Vienna, New York and various parts of Australia. I transformed my wanderlust into my latest series, THE LOST GIRLS. I'm so excited about this YA series about 5 friends who go travelling together.
1. Fish out of Water (out now)
2. Off the Map (out August 2019)
3. #Reallife (out Nov 2019)

I also have over seventy children’s books published, many written under the name Jane Hinchey. I’m a playwright, and have written travel articles for many publications worldwide.

Thanks for asking - great question. I've been writing now for 25 years, but the first few years were about learning to treat it like any job, and not sit around waiting for inspiration. A lot of the books I've written are for educational publishers. When my kids were younger I'd drop them at school and work until pickup time. On those days where it's difficult to get into it, I start with a sprint... put a timer on for 20 minutes and force myself to write for that time. Usually by the time the alarm goes off, I'm into the writing. Hope that answers it for you. :) Jane(less)
