We are excited to announce that New York Times Bestselling Author, Jane Green, is our new Featured Author of the Month and an Exclusive Spa Week Sponsor! Jane Green has the rare ability to capture the essence of the vulnerable emotions and experiences that women everywhere endure, which has solidified her role as a founder of the ‘chick lit’ genre. Born in London, England, the witty and acutely aware author began as a feature writer for publications like The Daily Express and Cosmopolitan, only to risk it all in 1996 to writer her first book, Straight Talking. Unsurprisingly, Jane’s debut novel was a breakout success, and the compassionate and poignant writer’s follow-up novels were equally well-received. Now experimenting with more complex and thought-provoking characters, Jane’s recent novels like The Other Woman and Tempting Fate have explored themes that nearly every modern woman can relate to. When asked about her transition from writing about the single girl in the city to darker, more difficult topics like divorce and infidelity, she said it was a natural progression. “I just wouldn’t write that kind of thing anymore,” Jane says about her earlier novels. “In that sense my books have always charted my own journey and where I am in my life, so I can’t see myself going back and writing a twenty-something piece.” Aside from penning New York Times Bestselling novels, Jane is a philanthropist, keynote speaker, and guest writer for The Sunday Times, Self and Huffington Post (among others). Jane attributes her passion for cooking, as exemplified in her new novel Saving Grace, to being a mother of six children and rarely being invited to dinner parties. Mark your calendars, because Saving Grace will be on stands this December! In the meantime, you can check out our book review here and find out what twists and turns you can expect!
