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. She now lives in Edinburgh, where she's a Royal Literary Fund Fellow at Queen Margaret University, and a Trustee of the StAnza International Poetry Festival.  
She tutors regularly for the Arvon Foundation, and is a freelance writing mentor and editor.
