ANNOUNCEMENT: New Writing Name and New Genre!

Hi everyone!

Just a quick announcement that I am moving names and genres yet again!

I have a new writing name, Betty Walker.

 My debut World War II saga WARTIME WITH THE CORNISH GIRLS came out a few days ago, on Thursday, April 29th 2021, under this new name.

Isn't she a beauty?

This is the first in the Cornish Girls series, and is published by Avon Books.

It's been so much fun, writing in a brand-new genre. And I can't wait to see the cover for Book 2, due out later this year, CHRISTMAS WITH THE CORNISH GIRLS.

And now I'm Betty Walker as well as Jane ... a new name to add to my many writing names!!! But this is how writers manage to survive in a rapidly shifting, and often shrinking, marketplace - by reinventing ourselves and learning new skills. 

Have you had to change pen-names or genres to survive or thrive? Let me know below.

1941. The Blitz rages over London.
And even in Cornwall, the war is being fought…

When Violet loses her sister in the Blitz, she must take her nieces to safety in Cornwall. On the coast, she meets carefree chorus girl Eva, who is also running from the dangers of London.

But Porthcurno hides a secret military base, and soon Violet and Eva realise there’s a battle to fight in Cornwall, too.

Together with local Hazel, who works on the base, they must come together to help the war effort. But will their friendship be enough to keep them safe?

The perfect uplifting wartime read for fans of Nancy Revell and Donna Douglas.

‘A fascinating story, beautifully written, with interesting characters I really liked. A most enjoyable read!’ Kitty Neale, Sunday Times bestselling author of A Daughter’s Ruin

‘A warm-hearted story – at times I laughed and at others I held my breath … I loved the characters and I’m delighted it is the first in a series’ Pam Weaver, Sunday Times bestselling author of Goodnight Sweetheart
