ABOUT Jane Gray

Jane Gray
Jane Gray was brought up by her Romany Grandfather and Gauja (non Romany) Grandmother as the youngest child of a family of ten. She lives and works in Nottinghamshire and writes in her spare time.


A tale of ghosts, jealousy, prejudice and passion set in the wilds of Dartmoor.

"My story was inspired by my own family, by my Romany grandfather and Gauja grandmother who with care and devotion brought me up and treated me as their daughter, their bitti chai, the youngest child of a family of ten. My grandfather instilled in me a pride in our heritage and it was with him in mind that Joe was born, even down to his two gold teeth and cigarette in his mouth. Many of the Romany characters are inspired either by family or friends."
