Jan Casey first heard the little known account of Waterloo Bridge, The Ladies' Bridge, being built by women during the Second World War on a Thames riverboat tour. The story fascinated her and The Women of Waterloo Bridge, Jan's first novel, is the outcome of her exploration into that event that had, until now, been airbrushed from history. Jan achieved an M.A. in Creative Writing from Norwich University and is published by Aria.
Jan was born in London but spent her childhood in Southern California. She has worked as a teacher of English and Drama and a Learning Supervisor in the field of further education, but now writes full-time.
Jan Casey is represented by Kiran Kataria.
