Jane Dunn

Jane Dunn is the author of six acclaimed biographies: from Elizabeth & Mary: Cousins, Rivals, Queens, (a Sunday Times and New York Times bestseller) to Daphne du Maurier and her Sisters. Mostly studying relationships within families, she has also written on such striking individuals as writers Mary Shelley and Antonia White. But long intrigued by the domestic fallout of the Napoleonic Wars, she has most recently turned to writing historical fiction set in the Regency. Now Virago reissues her ground-breaking exploration of the relationship between the sisters, Vanessa Bell and Virginia Woolf: A Very Close Conspiracy. Jane Dunn is a Fellow of the Royal Society of Literature and lives in Berkshire with her husband, the linguist and author Nicholas Ostler.
