Jane Davis – winner of the Daily Mail First Novel award

http://rcm.amazon.com/e/cm?t=wise044-20&o=1&p=8&l=bpl&asins=0552775703&fc1=000000&IS2=1&lt1=_blank&m=amazon&lc1=0000FF&bc1=000000&bg1=FFFFFF&f=ifrJane Davis entered the Daily Mail First Novel award competition after hearing about it at the Winchester Writers’ Conference in June. The closing date for entries was two days later, but luckily she had a manuscript fully prepared. That manuscript was Half-truths and White Lies.
Davis got “the” call  from Transworld  two days before her 41st birthday. That must have been some birthday celebration!
Jane Davis doesn’t claim to have a degree and has never attended a creative writing class. She admits to having “just had a bit of spare time on her hands, a laptop, and enough will power to stick at it.”

Half-Truths and White Lies is a beautifully crafted, thought-provoking novel that questions the influence of the people who are missing from our lives. It examines the thin line between love and friendship, looking at our complex emotional needs. It also explores how one woman’s life is dictated by her desire for children, whilst another’s is shaped by her decision not to have them.
Visit Jane Davis’ Website and be sure to take a look at Half-truths and White Lies.

The book has been described by Joanne Harris, author of Chocolat, as ‘a beautifully written story of secrets, lies, grief and, ultimately, redemption, charmingly handled by this very promising new writer.’
