Janet Gover grew up in a small Queensland country town, surrounded by books. After studying at Queensland University she became a television journalist, first in Australia, then in Asia and Europe. During her career Janet has met one Pope, a few movie stars and is on first name terms with a dolphin. She now works with television technology and travels extensively with her job. While living in Hong Kong, she met an Englishman, whom she subsequently married. She now lives in West London.
Her first fiction was published in 2002 – a short story inspired by a holiday in Wales. Her first novel was published in 2009. She now has nine published novels, with number 10 due in 2018. Her work has been translated into six languages. In 2017 Little Girl Lost won the Epic Romantic Novel of the Year award, presented by the Romantic Novelists Association (UK).
If asked, she would say her stories mostly revolve around woman discovering the strength to take control of their lives. And if there’s a bit of romance along the way, so much the better.
