Jane started out by writing short stories and has had over a hundred published in such mags as Bella, Best, Chat, My Weekly, More, The People’s Friend, Woman, Woman’s Weekly, Woman’s Realm, Take a Break (TaB), TaB Fiction Feast, Pulp Fiction, Active Life, Candis and Your Cat (or actually her sister’s cat since he was her inspiration for that one!).
Some of them have been reprinted in Norway, Sweden, Australia, South Africa and the US (which is very nice as it’s always great being paid twice!).
Jane has also been a “Love Expert” for BEST – ho ho – and wishes they’d ask her again.
