Jane Corry is a journalist and bestselling author best known for ‘My Husband’s wife’, a thrilling legal novel with elements of suspense that follows the exploits of a man’s current and previous wife as they join forces to get to the bottom of a mystery.

+Biography
Jane Corry’s strongest weapon has always been her imagination. She had an imaginary friend until her baby sister was born. She was already seven at the time and writing had come into the picture.

The author has since garnered a reputation for her journalistic efforts. Her work can be found in Newspapers and magazines. She has written for mainstream publications like the Daily Telegraph as well as niche brands like ‘Woman’s Own’ and ‘Good Housekeeping’.

The author cannot remember a time when she did not write. Jane was only three when she started experimenting with stories and poems. By the time she entered her teens, the author had already begun eying some of her local competitions.

She even won a poetry contest when she was seventeen. She remembers the achievement because she earned her victory around the same time that her boyfriend broke her heart. So she needed the consolation.

Jane Corry was successful as a journalist. Even though she got to teach creative writing at Oxford University, it was for her journalistic efforts that people got to know her.

In fact, even with her success in fiction, Jane’s journalistic efforts still have a strong following, especially the columns that chronicle her life as a new grandmother. Though, the fact that the author hasn’t attracted as much attention for her teaching efforts has not stopped her from using her experience and knowledge to help others maneuver the writing and publishing landscapes.

The author runs her own writing workshops in her community. She also attends literary festivals on the local and international stage.

Jane Corry’s novels are dramas with elements of suspense and mystery. She explores the lives of ordinary people that have been put in extraordinary situations.

+Literary Career
Even with all the success she has attracted, Jane Corry never really wanted to pursue journalism. She eventually nurtured a passion for the field. But in the beginning, all Jane cared about was writing novels.

However, she knew she needed a means of earning a living as she got her publishing career off the ground. She decided to pursue journalism because the field would allow her to hone her writing abilities.

Jane was certain that journalism would give her plenty of opportunities to experiment with her fictional stories. But once she actually started down the journalism path, she found that researching and writing her columns took a lot of her time.

Along the way, she got married and had three children. The development consumed any moments of freedom she thought she could squeeze out of her busy work schedule. So her plan to develop her novels as she worked went out the window.

For a long time, Jane merely went with the flow. She let her work and her family life dictate her path, and that path seemingly provided no means for the author to pursue a career in fiction.

But then Jane’s marriage ended. Her youngest child was fourteen-years-old when she became a single mother. As she struggled to find her bearings, the author got a job at a high-security prison.

She was hired on a two-year contract to work as a writer in residence, though she eventually spent three years in the position. Her job was to help the inmates master their writing talents.

The job brought her to the prison where she worked at least twice a week. The experience was life-changing. The men Jane met—the prisoners—were all so surprisingly normal and she had no trouble interacting with them.

They all looked like any other friend, family or neighbor she knew. She admits that she made a mistake when she actually delved into their backgrounds and learned of the atrocious crimes that some of them had committed.

It changed the way she dealt with them and, after a while, she decided she was better off not knowing their crimes. Besides her personal interactions with so many unique personalities, Jane Corry was shocked by how much writing talent she encountered in prison.

Over the next three years, Jane felt her confidence in her own writing abilities grow. By the time she left the job, she was married to her second husband. She was also ready to give fiction a shot.

So she wrote ‘My Husband’s wife’. The book features a lawyer who must defend the woman who stole her husband and has now been charged with murder.

Jane loves writing about flawed characters because they feel like real people to her. Jane doesn’t see the purpose in exploring perfect characters. Her books normally feature many twists and turns.

It takes Jane about a year to write her novels. She takes three months to write her first draft, and then four or so months to carry out the necessary edits. Most of her writing gets done in complete peace and quiet. She does not appreciate interruptions.

+My Husband’s sister
When Lily and Carla encounter one another on Lily’s doorstep, their lives have changed so drastically. Sixteen years ago, Carla was only nine but she was a shrewd little girl who knew how powerful secrets could be, especially when they were used to manipulate others.

Lily was still a young lawyer at the time and she wanted to believe that her marriage to Ed would allow her to escape the secrets of her past. Her first murder case and initial encounter with a convicted criminal made all that rather difficult.

More than a decade later, Lily and Carla’s lives are about to collide in more ways than one.

+Blood Sisters
Kitty was just a little child when she left for school with two other girls. One of those two girls was dead just one hour later. Kitty now lives in an institution. More than a decade has passed since those tragic days.

Kitty does not speak and she does not remember the day that her life changed. A frightening encounter is about to bring her worst fears to life.
