About Jan

Pretty basic for now - I'm Jan, English, retired but hoping to be writing full time from now on. 

I live near Launceston in Cornwall UK with Toby and Benji the Springer Spaniels - it's a tie between the boys as to who's maddest, but as I outrank both of them in being weird anyway it's not open to debate really.

I'm physically lazy with things that don't hold much interest for me (so that's mostly housework and, increasingly, cooking...), but I love where we live, mainly because I chose it for being so quiet and off the beaten track, very close to the moors and quite near to the sea.

I also love books, both to write and to read, the latter of which can be very eclectic (I enjoy Julian Barnes, Kate Atkinson, Jeanette Winterson and will happily admit to Jilly Cooper too) but in the main I'm heavily into SF&F, particularly Tolkien, Terry Pratchett and Julian May, although I can pass on Zombie Apocalypses fairly easily...

...how I've chosen to write about Africa for my first novel may be something of a surprise to my friends, but if you read it you may find that all of the above information manifests in there somehow!

If you need to know more about what I'm up to these days I now have a fuller author blog on Jan Hawke INKORPORATED
