"Jan Ellis, writer of romcom
and contemporary fiction"
JE with books at Chard.jpg


If you are looking for smart, funny stories with a hint of mystery thrown in, you've come to the right place!

My fiction began life as ebooks, but In March 2017 the lovely folk at Waverley published paperback editions of A Summer of Surprises and An Unexpected Affair: the first two stories featuring Devon bookseller, Eleanor. Before long these were joined by a brand-new novel called The Bookshop Detective in which Eleanor has to unravel some local mysteries whilst running the shop and juggling a new husband and an old mother. These books are one and two in what we are calling The Bookshop by The Sea series.

The second pair of fun romcoms – French Kisses and A London Affair – appeared in paperback in May 2017.

I hope you enjoy them and look forward to chatting with you on Facebook and Twitter @JanEllis_writer.


Thank you for dropping by!
