Welcome to Just Curious Jane
Hello! I’m Jane Gulliford Lowes, a non-fiction author, and history (especially social history and the Second World War) is my “thing”. I’ve lived in County Durham my whole life, and as a result I’m passionate about the people, places and history of North East England.
My debut best-selling book, The Horsekeeper’s Daughter, was published in 2017. My second, Above Us The Stars: 10 Squadron Bomber Command – The Wireless Operator’s Story, was published in September 2020 (now available here).
I give talks and lectures around the North East (and sometimes further afield) to schools, colleges, youth groups, local history societies, Rotary Clubs, Womens’ Institutes and U3A groups, and have contributed to several podcasts and radio shows, including History Hack, Khaki Malarkey and Home Brew History. If you’d like to arrange a talk, discussion group, book signing or a chat over a coffee, get in touch – all enquiries to firstname.lastname@example.org. You can find out more about forthcoming events and talks here.
UPDATE: COVID 19 – All talks can be given by Zoom, to groups all around the country.
