Jane has been performing around the country as a stand-up comic since 2006, and reached the final of the prestigious English Comedian of the Year in 2009. Last year her Edinburgh Fringe show Cow played to packed audiences at the Free Festival and was described as "joyful", "empowering" and "highly-relatable" by Broadway Baby.
Away from comedy, Jane is a successful novelist. In the UK, her three psychological thrillers have been published by Arrow (part of Penguin Random House). She is also published in a number of other countries including the US, Germany and the Netherlands.
Jane has had a long career in radio journalism and management, was nominated as Radio Academy Programmer of the Year in 2004 and currently works as a trainer for the BBC.
Many years ago, back in the Magnus Magnusson days, Jane reached the semi-finals of Mastermind, answering questions on Clint Eastwood and the Wimbledon Tennis Championships (two separate subjects, not some bizarre hybrid.)
