Jane Haseldine is a journalist, former crime reporter, columnist, newspaper editor, magazine writer, and deputy director of communications for a governor. Jane writes the Julia Gooden mystery series for Kensington Publishing.
Jane was born in Canada and spent much of her early childhood on the road with her three siblings and parents, as her British father was always trying to cook up his next big business deal. Jane survived the long car rides that took her from the rocky coast of Maine to the deep red clay of Georgia in her early days by reading anything she could get her hands on, including the Chronicles of Narnia series, A Wrinkle in Time, and everything written by Judy Blume. Jane spent a good stretch of her later childhood in Rehoboth Beach, Delaware, and then Gloucester, Massachusetts, where she discovered John Steinbeck and swore after reading The Grapes of Wrath, she’d become a writer. Jane graduated from Syracuse University’s S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications with a degree in journalism and has spent her adulthood working at newspapers and magazines across the country, the wanderlust of the open road still staying with her as she’s called Louisiana, San Francisco, Boston, New York, Michigan, and Pennsylvania all home. Jane currently resides in Southern California with her husband and two sons.
