Anstey, Jane

Jane Anstey began writing before she left junior school, and had her first story published in the school magazine. She graduated from Oxford University in 1976 with a degree in Modern History and taught for four years before her first child was born in 1982. She then worked as a freelance copy-editor and indexer until her retirement at the end of 2023. She lived first in Hampshire, which is the setting for St Martin's Summer, You Owe Me Five Farthings and Thirteen Forty-Nine, then in Cornwall, the setting of the third Jeremy Swanson mystery Priest Hole. She is now settled in a village in Shropshire, close to the border with Wales. She is married with two grown-up daughters.
