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. Before becoming a novelist, Jan had short stories and flash fiction published and achieved an M.A. in Creative Writing from Norwich University.
Jan was born in London but spent her childhood in Southern California. She was a teacher of English and Drama for many years and is now a Learning Supervisor in the field of further education.
