Jane A Adams
Author of twenty five published novels in the Crime genre. Published by Pan Macmillan, Allison and Busby and Severn House, and short stories in various genre. I have been published both as Jane Adams and as Jane A Adams. I don't write many short stories these days, which is a shame, as I enjoy both reading and writing them - so hopefully CUT will give that desire new impetus. I teach Creative Writing at De Montfort Universiy in Leicester and have also been a Royal Literary Fund Fellow at Leicester Uni, De Montfort and Nottingham Trent. I blog at www.janeadamsauthor.com Tweet - though I'm not very good at it yet! @janeadamsauthor and have a Fb page at https://www.facebook.com/pages/Jane-A-Adams/419736751371916

He removed the book from the evidence bag and lay it down on the wooden table of the interview room. It was, he thought, a sad little volume, filled with the faces of the long dead, stiffly posed and their eyes gazing from the book at a world at a world so changed it made him wince to think of it.
