About Jan Ellis: Jan Ellis began writing fiction by accident in 2013. Until then she had worked in publishing, and as an editor and historian of early modern Spain. She fell into fiction when a digital publisher approached her to write a history book, then made the mistake of mentioning women's fiction, which sounded more fun. Jan's stories have small-town settings with realistic characters who range in age from young teens to eighty-somethings. She is somewhat surprised to find herself a member of the Romantic Novelists' Association.
