Jenny Ashcroft is a British author of historical fiction. Having spent many years living, working and exploring in Australia and Asia – a time which gave her an enduring passion for stories set in exotic places – she is now based in Brighton where she lives with her family by the sea.
She has a degree in history and has always been fascinated by the past – in particular, the way that extraordinary events can transform the lives of normal people.
Her first book, Beneath a Burning Sky, was a 2017 Kindle bestseller, and Island in the East is her second novel. She is currently working on her third, set in 1920s India.
