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, Women’s Institutes and U3A groups and at private events.
I have contributed to podcasts, documentaries, and radio shows, including We Have Ways of Making You Talk, History Hack, Khaki Malarkey, Combat Morale and Home Brew History. You can listen to me chatting to James Holland recently about Bomber Command’s Minelaying Operations here
You can listen to and watch my work via my linktree, where you’ll find all my podcasts and media work, and links to my recent articles.
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.
