Jan Harvey was born in Ormskirk, Lancashire in 1961. After a career as a magazine editor/designer working on various business publications she became an author five years ago.
The Seven Letters, her debut novel, sold worldwide and has had stunning reviews. Her second book, The Slow Death of Maxwell Carrick is now released and has already been highly praised. The two books are linked by Paris, the city that inspires her work.
Jan is also an artist and illustrator and enjoys creative activities of all kinds. Her lifelong passion for all things equine is reflected in her artwork. She campaigns endlessly against animal cruelty in all its forms.
Living in the Cotswolds with her husband Paul and very badly behaved Flat-coated Retriever, Byron, Jan enjoys country walks and being with her family.
