Jane A Hobden

I’m passionate about telling a story and evoking emotion from a complete stranger. I have so many stories in my head, to spend my days extracting them onto paper is a dream come true.

I live with my husband and two children on the East Sussex coast in Hastings, a stone’s throw from my childhood home.  My children both love reading and writing and have wonderful, vivid imaginations!  I particularly love thrillers, whether it be crime, suspense or psychological, something that thrills me and believe me when I tell you, I read a lot.  At the beginning of 2021, I decided to start my own blog which I'm thoroughly enjoying.   


My debut book, The Hartford Inheritance was published in 2014.  In the past seven years, I have been trying to put pen to paper writing a second novel that I would be proud of.  I released Guilty, my second novel, in May 2021.

My background is in criminal law where every day brought something new.  I have spent a lot of time in Courts and Prisons preparing a persons’ case for trial including meeting a wide range of clientele who, in most cases would be absolutely terrified of the process and the fear of facing a prison sentence.  I find that it brings both the best and the worst out in people and it has certainly inspired my writing.   


I love hearing from readers about my novels so please, do get in touch either through social media or through the contact form on the Marketing Services page.
