Jane Green was born and brought up in North West London. She abandoned a Fine Art degree course to pursue a career in writing, initially tackling showbusiness stories for various national newspapers and magazines, before moving on to Public Relations. She spent a year and a half as the publicist on the This Morning show, before joining the Daily Express where she became known for her humorous, pithy features on relationships and dating.
In January 1996 she left the Express to freelance, and in May of that year started work on her first novel, Straight Talking. By August she had signed a publishing deal and is the author of several subsequent novels, Jemima J, Mr Maybe, Bookends, Babyville, Spellbound, The Other Woman, Life Swap, Second Chance, The Beach House, Girl Friday, Saving Grace, Summer Secrets, Falling and The Sunshine Sisters, which have led the way for a new generation of readers. Her books have been international bestsellers and are translated into over twenty languages around the world.
Jane lives in Connecticut with her four children.
