“Jane is a natural and engaging speaker. She has an encyclopaedic knowledge of her subject and easily captures and keeps her audience’s attention. I can also vouch for her energy and enthusiasm.

Hello, thanks for visiting my website.

My first novel will be published in January 2023. Sole Brethren: If The Shoe Fits by B.A. Summer (my pen name) is a witty romp set in contemporary London.

One reviewer described it as: ” an unforgettable ride with a cast of characters as preternaturally gifted as they are charming.”
