Profile Summary

There is very little information in the public domain about this agent. While Jane does now have a website, it is very basic and contains no information regarding her particular interests. From what our Agent Hunters researchers have found, it looks as though Jane specialises in crime and thrillers, though most commercial fiction is appropriate to submit to her. 

Jane once named the infamous Jeffrey Bernard among her clients and now claims bestselling author Roz Morris. There is no comprehensive client list for Jane available. If you have any further details that would be of interest to Agent Hunter users, please let us know.
