MYSTERY & SUSPENSE WRITER Jane E James weaves supernatural elements through her novels to create chilling reads that appeal to fans of psychological thrillers & dark fiction.
Jane has always been interested in dark, disturbing subjects and finds damaged and dysfunctional people far more intriguing than ordinary, everyday characters, especially unreliable narrators who never let truth get in the way of a good story.
She enjoys living ‘the good life’ in the Cambridgeshire countryside with her husband but can mostly be found with her head in a book or writing at her desk with a Jack Russell Terrier curled up at her feet. Rebecca, Carrie, The Woman in Black and Wuthering Heights are among some of her favourite reads.
A long walk in the woods or a stroll along the coastline is what inspires her to write but most of her ideas come when she is relaxing in the bath with a glass of wine. Not being afraid of ‘being afraid’ is another of the forces that drives her. She says she writes what she likes to read and makes no apologies for that.
