Jan Mark was born in Hertfordshire during the Second World War. She was a secondary teacher before becoming an award-winning author. She won the Carnegie Medal twice for her novels Thunder and Lightnings and Handles. Jan had a very traditional writing method - she would write her first draft by hand, and her following drafts on an old typewriter (over 80 books were written on this typewriter!) Jan sadly passed away in 2006.
