Jane Christmas


Over the last decade best-selling author Jane Christmas has entertained readers with a trio of madcap travel memoirs from Canada, Spain, and Italy. The Pelee Project (2002), What the Psychic Told the Pilgrim (2007) and Incontinent on the Continent (2009).

Born in Toronto in 1954, Jane worked her way through the editing ranks of various newsrooms – the Woodstock-Sentinel-Review, CTV, The Hamilton Spectator, The Globe and Mail, and National Post. A self-described “super-late bloomer”, Jane eventually found her writing voice – direct, authentic, and funny. She zeroes in on the awkward but ultimately inspiring moments of everyday life. Jane has three grown children, and lives in England. She is presently at work on her next book.
