Jane Jordan was born in in England and grew up exploring the history and culture of London and surrounding counties. After some time spent in Germany in the 1990s, she immigrated to Detroit, USA, eventually settling in South West Florida. She returned to England, after a fifteen year absence, to spend six years in the South West of England living on Exmoor. Here, inspired by the atmosphere, beautiful scenery, and the ancient history of the place, she wrote her first novel Ravens Deep. The next two books Blood & Ashes and A Memoir of Carl completed her gothic vampire trilogy.

Jordan is a trained horticulturist, and also spent time working and volunteering for Britain’s National Trust at Exmoor’s 1000-year-old Dunster Castle. Gaining more insight into the history and mysteries surrounding these ancient places, and having always been intrigued by the supernatural, inspiration came for her fourth novel, The Beekeeper’s Daughter, combining the age-old struggle between good and evil with the passion and romance of the characters she creates.

Jordan returned to Florida in 2013 and lives in Sarasota with her family.
