J.A. Lang is the author of the Chef Maurice Mysteries, set in the fictional Cotswold village of Beakley, conveniently located within driving distance of her home in Oxford, England. She lives with her husband, an excessive number of cookbooks, and a sourdough starter named Bob.

Her favourite authors include Agatha Christie, P.G. Wodehouse and Terry Pratchett.

When not at her writing desk, she enjoys cooking, eating, travelling to places with good food, drinking good wine, and thinking about her next meal. (Please note that any similarities between J.A. Lang and her main character, Chef Maurice, are purely coincidental.)

J.A. Lang hasn't written any blog posts yet.

"Well my two day sadness hangover has ended so I am prepared to write this now.
