A WELCOME FROM JANET
Thanks for visiting! If you love books, history or 20th century nostalgia I hope you’ll find something of interest here.
My historical novels cover many political events and social upheavals of the previous century, and span the globe from India to Britain. I’ve written 21 books including The India Tea Series, the Jarrow Trilogy, the Durham Trilogy, and the Tyneside Sagas. My India novels start in 1904 and go through the momentous times of the final years of the British Raj. They were partly inspired by diaries, letters and old cine films belonging to my grandparents who had lived and worked in India.
The novels regularly appear in ebook bestseller charts: The Tea Planter’s Daughter was an Amazon Kindle top ten bestseller, as well as being a bestseller in France, Russia and Italy. The Jarrow Trilogy and Tyneside Sagas have topped the Kindle Family Saga category.
If like me, you grew up in the 1960’s, then you’ll love my childhood memoirs – an unashamedly nostalgic depiction of both Scotland and the North East of England in the 1960’s – the heyday of the Beatles!
If you want to get in touch or leave comments, I’d be pleased to hear from you.
All the best, Janet.
