Jennifer Lane ~ Monday Features Editor
Jenn has always been surrounded by books: you can't move in her house for fear of knocking over a stack or two. She's worked in libraries, bookshops and has even turned her hand to writing a few of them herself.
She studied an MA in Writing for Children before being represented by Curtis Brown Literary and Talent Agency. Born in Liverpool but now based in Lancaster, Jenn loves to ramble on the moors, watch wildlife and scribble things down in her notebook.

Julie is American and has lived most of her life in Europe, mainly in France and Germany. Her four children all went to school in the U.K. and two still live here. She moved to London this year from Paris and is looking forward to working on Words and Pictures.
I'm sure you'll agree, what a fabulous bunch they are. Here's to a fun time working on W&P. Cheers, Nancy.
