Jane Thynne

UK flag (b.1961)
Wife of Philip Kerr

Jane Thynne was born in Venezuela in 1961 and grew up with her parents and two brothers in London. After school in Hampton, she spent a year working at the Old Vic Theatre before reading English at St Annes College, Oxford.

She then joined the BBC as a production trainee, but after a few years succumbed to a hankering for Fleet Street and moved to The Sunday Times. She spent many cheerful years at The Daily Telegraph as media correspondent, but her single most exciting moment was getting a publishing contract for her first novel.

In particular she has a passion for historical fiction and loves the research that involves.

As well as writing books she now freelances as a journalist, writing regularly for numerous British magazines and newspapers, and also appears as a broadcaster on Radio 4.
