About Jane Odiwe

Jane Odiwe is a British author with a special interest in writing novels inspired by Jane Austen’s works.

Jane is an ambassador for the Jane Austen Literacy Foundation, established by Jane Austen’s 5th great niece, Caroline Jane Knight. She is also a member of the Jane Austen Society, and the Romantic Novelist’s Association. When she’s not writing she enjoys painting and trying to capture the spirit of Jane Austen’s world. Her illustrations feature in a short biographical film of Jane Austen’s life, and in the picture book, Effusions of Fancy.
