Jane Corry is a six-times Sunday Times best-selling author, published by Penguin. She is also a Washington Post best-seller and has sold over a million copies world-wide in over 20 countries including the States.
Jane went to North London Collegiate School and then read English at Reading University before training as a journalist with the Thomson organisation. This led to a career as a features writer during which she wrote for Woman, Woman’s Own, Woman & Home, Good Housekeeping, The Daily Express and numerous other publications.
She is a regular contributor to The Daily Telegraph; a short story writer; a columnist for My Weekly magazine; a former creative writing tutor at Oxford University; a former writer-in-residence at high security male prison (which changed her life) ; a life-story arts judge for the Koestler Awards, given to men and women in prison; a former Royal Literary Fund Fellow at Exeter University; a runner up in the Harry Bowling Award; a winner of the Elizabeth Goudge trophy for short stories and the Vera Brittain cup for short stories.
However, it was her move to prison which really changed her career; a job which she initially took for financial reasons but became passionate about, despite reservations from friends and family,
‘I went from writing features on Woman’s Own magazine to working with men who had committed the worst crimes possible,’ she says. ‘It altered my life – and my writing.’
Jane’s books include:
My husband’s wife,
The dead ex,
I looked away,
I made a mistake,
The lies we tell.
..and her new June 2022 novel ‘We all have our secrets’.
She lives in Devon with her second husband and swims throughout the year. ‘I did so before it became fashionable! It helps to clear my head and to appreciate the wonder of the world.’
