Author Jane Hatton


Welcome to author Jane Hatton's home page

General fiction novelist from Cornwall, UK.

Jane Hatton was a child during World War II, and grew up in the unpermissive fifties, when career options for women were confined to Secretary/Nurse/Teacher/Physiotherapist. She opted for the first, thinking the skills required would be useful in her preferred career as a writer, but has since worked in hotels, as a sailing instructor, in a craft workshop and as a cookery demonstrator - a remarkably unstructured career - while continuing to write whenever there was a spare moment - sometimes there were not many!

She has had two children’s books published (a long time ago), and three novels, plus the one too awful to mention. Apart from writing, her interests include boats, painting - including scenery for local pantomimes - and photography. She lives in Cornwall with her husband and a small black cat called Kitty-Kitty.
