Jane Porter | A Thing Called Grace
October 17, 2007
Iím a hard worker, a good mom, a loyal friend, and sometimes a pretty decent writer, but that doesnít mean everything goes smoothly  Read More...

An award–winning novelist with over 5 million books in print, Jane Porter is still a small town girl at heart, never feeling too far away from her roots in central California's golden foothills, oak trees, and miles of farmland.

When Jane was thirteen her family moved to Europe for a year, and that abroad changed Jane forever, introducing her to different cultures and customs and creating a lifelong passion for books, travel, and adventure. Jane later spent much of her high school and college years abroad, studying in South Africa, Japan and Ireland.

Armed with a Bachelors degree in American Studies from UCLA, Jane immersed herself in sales and marketing, followed by another six years in the teaching trenches of junior high school before becoming a full–time fiction writer with an MA in Writing from the University of San Francisco.

Jane's first published novel, THE ITALIAN GROOM, sold to Harlequin Presents in 2000. Since then, Jane has been prolific, penning 30 novels. She was a finalist for the prestigious RITA award from Romance Writers of America in both 2002 and 2003.

The publication of THE FROG PRINCE in May 2005 marked a new avenue for Jane's career. Taking a more literary turn than her previous work, Jane stayed close to home, using the backdrop of exciting San Francisco to look at the complex relationships between mothers, daughters and the men they love.

July 2006 marked the release of Jane's second multi–bestselling modern lit novel, FLIRTING WITH FORTY, set in Seattle and Hawaii. Selected as Redbook Magazine's Red Hot Read for 2006, FLIRTING WITH FORTY was reprinted seven times in six weeks before being optioned by Sony for Lifetime TV. The film aired in December 2008 starring Heather Locklear and Robert Buckley, was one of Lifetime's 3 most successful films of 2008 and is now available on DVD at major retail stores.

Jane's highly anticipated third modern lit, ODD MOM OUT released September 2007 generated considerable buzz and earned critical acclaim including 4 1/2 Stars, Top Pick award from RT Magazine and a RITA nomination from Romance Writers of America as best single title with romantic elements. Mrs. Perfect, the follow up to Odd Mom Out, hit the shelves May 2008 with tremendous success pleasing both the critics and readers. USA Today called MRS. PERFECT 'the perfect beach read'. ODD MOM OUT and MRS. PERFECT were both optioned prior to MRS. PERFECT's release and are currently being developed into a television series.

Jane's fifth and sixth novels with Grand Central, EASY ON THE EYES (2009) and SHE'S GONE COUNTRY (2010) continued to explore Jane's themes of the complexity of women's lives today, whether it is aging, motherhood, or parenting a child with depression.

After sixteen years in Greater Seattle, Jane has returned to California, and is now making her home in a historic Ole Hanson home in San Clemente, with her surfer husband and three active sons. When she's not on the beach or speaking to writers, she's at her desk working on her next novel, and is looking forward to the release of her new book, THE GOOD WOMAN, a September 2012 release from Berkley Trade.
