Jane New grew up in Tasmania, Australia. When she wasn't at
the beach or in the bush with a pack of neighborhood kids,
she was reading. The highlight of her young life was the day
she turned thirteen and satisfied the entry requirement for
the adult section of the local library.
She discovered writing in her thirties and has published
short stories, verse, and nonfiction articles in Australia.
Bored with the depiction of romantic heroes and heroines as
eternally young and beautiful, she wrote a brief erotic
piece for a lover about a middle-aged couple. He liked it so
much that he encouraged her to write more, and several short
pieces have been published on various websites.
She dreams of a cottage near the sea where all she has to do
is write, feed her cat, and have occasional lovers to stay.
Purely for research purposes, of course.
is her first story for Cobblestone Press.
