About Jean

While writing her first book, Jean came up with the idea of forming a Sir Joseph Banks Society.  She brought together a committee and successfully applied for charitable status.  She then headed two small sub groups creating a Tribute Garden to celebrate Sir Joseph’s interest in botany and a library focusing on his life and interests.   

She is now a member of a Henry Winn Legacy Project which aims to promote a self educated Victorian man who kept diaries, letter and essay books, as well as poetry about everyday life in a Victorian Village. This was the person of the past who ignited her interest in social history, her next book is based on his manuscript books.

Born in Sunderland, but now living in a small village in the Lincolnshire Wolds an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.  She has had a varied career – Coroners Secretary, Newspaper Reporter, Manager of a Tourist Information Centre and Director of the Lincolnshire Air Ambulance.  She has served as a District Councillor, Trustee of a Day Centre and a founding Board Member of the Lincolnshire Community Foundation.
