Jan Mark


Jan Mark was born in Hertfordshire during the Second World War and was a secondary teacher before becoming an award-winning author. She won the Carnegie Medal twice for her novels Thunder and Lightnings and Handles. Jan had a very traditional writing method – she would write her first draft by hand, and her following drafts on an old typewriter. Jan died suddenly in 2006.
