In December 2019 I entered into discussions with an International Literary Agent interested in representing me internationally. I hadn't even considered getting an agent, but having been approached and after doing my homework, I was prepared to give the idea consideration. One year later, after lots of discussions, I am happy to announce that on December 10th, 2020 I signed an agreement with Langtons International Literary Agency based in New York, USA. I am now represented by their founder, Linda Langton.
For me, White Stones was to be a one-off story. One full of mystery, a little romance, a woman haunted by a piece of music and an element of time-slipping. When the book reached its final paragraph, the main characters had had their stories told. ... but...
My Guest Author is Lizzie Chantree: International Best Selling Author and Networker. Her latest book is Networking for Writers.
In my new book, Networking for writers, I talk about ways to grow your readership and author network. Marketing your own work can seem very daunting, but that can be turned around to make marketing something you look forward to. It doesn’t have to eat into precious writing time, or push you into procrastination because you aren’t sure which direction to take next.

Undercover: Crime Shorts with more twists and turns than Spaghetti Junction. Crime stories for those with little time for a novel.
I took these photos over a period of time on different occasions. I came across them when looking for a particular photo. I have many albums of photos (compiled in the days of film and developing) going back to my early teens, and sadly I have found that many have faded, especially Polaroid photos, which is sad. Fading memories. I […]

When Stars Will Shine is a multi-genre collection of Christmas-themed short stories compiled to raise money for our armed forces and every penny made from the sales of both the digital and paperback copies will be donated to the charity.
It’s been a while since I’ve shared some photos so here goes. I hope you enjoy them. I’ve been out and about enjoying the countryside and fresh air. A much needed break from my writing. All of these gardens and great houses have fabulous walks, woods, lakes, and forestry as well as formal gardens for public enjoyment. They all have the most fantastic histories too. Check their websites for opening details, entry fees, and car park charges (where applicable). Members of The National Trust and of The Savill Gardens who pay an annual fee can enter free. I have included websites where possible in case you are keen to know more or to arrange a visit yourself. I’ve taken these photos on my phone camera. I hope you have enjoyed my photos and the details with them which I’ve added so that anyone interested can find more information if they wish. Do let me know if I have inspired you to visit any of these amazing places. Next time I’ll share some more. Thanks for being here. Jane x All photos (c) Jane Risdon 2019 and All Rights Reserved.
