Jane is Writing Magazine’s agony aunt. Every month she writes a very personal and to the point reply to wannabe writers' questions.

Watching Jane dance on the table is one of the highlights of my week.
At the book launch I met other famous authors such as Adele Parks, Helen Lederer, Ray Allen and many more. In fact, I got 22 signatures in my book. Several glasses of wine later I left Borders very happy indeed.
