Penelope Janu is an Australian author who writes contemporary fiction about clever and adventurous women who don’t mean to fall in love, but do. Penelope's fifth novel, Starting From Scratch, was published by HarperCollins in January 2021, and is available in print and as an ebook. HarperCollins have also published earlier novels, Up on Horseshoe Hill (2019) On the Right Track (2018) and In at the Deep End (2017). On the Same Page is available in print at A novella, The Six Rules of Christmas, was published by HarperCollins in October, 2020. Penelope is an ex-lawyer with an interest in social justice issues and the environment. She, like her characters, is up for any adventure, even though she has a terrible sense of direction. She has six children, big dogs, a distracting husband and never enough time to write. Penelope hopes readers will fall as passionately in love with her heroines and heroes as she invariably does. She has travelled to many places in the world but has lived most of her life in Sydney. When not reading or writing Penelope can be found walking the coastline, or in the bush. She's recently ventured out on a 320km walk across England, and a 200km walk around Mont Blanc (warning: she's not much of a walking companion as she plots as she walks). You can contact Penelope via her website: She loves to hear from readers!
