Jane Feaver has been writing and publishing fiction since 2006.

She was born in Durham, and spent her early childhood in Newcastle, until, when she was nine, the family moved to London. After a degree in English at Oxford, she worked at the Pitt Rivers Museum, and then, for a dozen years in the editorial department at Faber and Faber. In 2001 she moved with her young daughter to Devon to take up a job at the charity, Farms for City Children. It was in Devon that she began to write seriously, and, after publishing her first two books, became a lecturer in Creative Writing at Exeter University. At the end of 2020, mid-pandemic, she moved to Edinburgh, where she's now based. 

She is a regular tutor for the Arvon Foundation, a Fellow of the Royal Literary Fund, and works as a mentor and editor.
