Jane Fraser lives, works and writes fiction in a house facing the sea in the Gower peninsula, south Wales. In 2017 she was a finalist for the Manchester Fiction Prize and in 2018 was a prize-winner for the Fish Memoir Prize and selected as a Hay Festival Writer at Work, a prestigious creative development bursary for emerging writers.
Her short fiction has been commissioned by BBC Radio 4 as part of its Short Works series. Her first short story collection, The South Westerlies, was published by SALT in 2019, and her second collection, Connective Tissue, was published in October 2022 – also with SALT. Advent, her first novel, was published by Honno, the UK’s longest-standing women’s press in 2021, and in 2022, was awarded the Paul Torday Memorial Prize for a debut novel. She is currently working on her second novel.
Jane has a PhD in Creative Writing from Swansea University, is wife to Philip, and co-director of NB:Design, a business they share. Importantly, she is grandmother to Megan (13), Florence (11), and Alice (8).
