Jane Steen

Jane Steen

The most important fact you need to know about Jane Steen is that she was named after Jane Eyre, which to this day remains one of her favorite books. She was clearly doomed to love all things Victorian, and ended up studying both English and French nineteenth-century writers in depth. This was a pretty good grounding for launching herself into writing novels set in the nineteenth century. Jane was living in the Chicago suburbs when she began writing the House of Closed Doors series, inspired by a photograph of the long-vanished County Poor Farm in her area. Now back in her native England, Jane lives in an idyllic ancient town in sight of the sea. This location has sparked a new series about an aristocratic family with more secrets than most: The Scott-De Quincy Mysteries. Jane writes for readers who love a series you can’t put down. She blends saga, mystery, adventure, and a touch of romance, set against the background of the real-life issues facing women in the late nineteenth century. Jane is a member of the Alliance of Independent Authors, the Historical Novel Society, Novelists, Inc., and the Society of Authors.
