Janey Louise Jones - Author

Janey Jones is a full-time writer and mother of three. She was born in Edinburgh but grew up by the seaside just outside the city.
She read English at Edinburgh University specializing in the Victorian novel.
Following this she became a teacher - a career that she absolutely adored - and then, with her husband, set up The Jelly Club, which has become an extremely successful chain of children's activity centres in Scotland.
Her childhood dream of writing about her alter ego, Princess Poppy, was realised through self-publishing in 2005. The hugely popular Princess Poppy series has sold over three million copies to date and has been translated into several languages.

Janey lives by the sea with her sons, husband and Buddy the golden labrador. She loves beaches and shells, fairies, crafts, Victorian novels and cinema trips with her family.
