About the author

Jan Daniels was born in the late 50's in England , but has called Australia home for over five decades.

Jan has a deep love for the natural beauty of the country, especially of her spiritual homeland and muse, Anglesea. Raising her three children in the Surfcoast township as a sole parent gave her a solid foundation to rebuild her life and find the peace and stability she so craved.

Jan is fascinated by people, conversations, the human spirit, the seasons of life, artistic talent and reality TV. Her greatest joy comes from beauty and colour, family and belonging, the lure of clifftops and an angry sea, the will to win and her beloved Hawthorn Football Club - the longest relationship and love affair of her life.

After a lifetime working in community services Jan has now retired to live a more gentle life and spend her days full of sunshine and song.
