Jan Ellis began writing fiction by accident in 2013. Until then, she had led a blameless life as a publisher, editor and historian of early modern Spain. She fell into fiction when Endeavour Press approached her to write a history book, then made the mistake of mentioning women’s fiction, which sounded much more fun.
Jan describes her books as romcom with the emphasis firmly on family, friendship and humour. She specialises in small-town settings, with realistic characters who range in age from young teens to eighty-somethings. She is delighted – if somewhat surprised – to find herself a member of the Romantic Novelists’ Association.
Jan Ellis is a nom-de-plume.
