THIS WEEK: Jane Cable
Jane Cable is a writer of romantic novels with a twist of mystery. Her first, The Cheesemaker’s House, was a finalist in the Alan Titchmarsh Show’s People’s Novelist competition and won the Words for the Wounded Independent Novel Award in 2015. She is a member of both the Romantic Novelists’ Association and the Society of Authors. Her passions includ
e bodyboarding and watching cricket, although clearly not at the same time.
JANE SAYS: My latest novel, Another You, is set in Studland Bay in Dorset. It tells the story of Marie Johnson who is trapped by her job as a chef in the local pub and by her increasingly poisonous marriage to its landlord. Worn down by his string of affairs she has no self-confidence, no self-respect and the only thing that keeps her going is watching her son turn into a talented artist.
But the sixtieth anniversary of a D-Day exercise which ended in disaster triggers chance meetings which prove unlikely catalysts for change as Marie discovers that sometimes the hardest person to save is yourself.
Oddly enough Another You began with an old boat called Turbot which a friend and I spotted floating forlornly just off the shore on a visit to Studland. We swam around it and back on the beach started to make up stories about who it belonged to and why it looked so abandoned. TO READ THE INTERVIEW IN FULL, CLICK HERE
