|McCartney, J Lou|
|Janet Louise McCartney was born and brought up in the beautiful Georgian town of Whitehaven, Cumbria which is located close to the Lake District. She is married to Gary and has a teenage daughter called Tamzin. Her daughter's design was the inspiration for the book jacket.
After thirteen years of having the initial idea she has finally written her first fictional novel,'De Marco Empire' which was published by Vanguard Press, an Imprint of Pegasus Elliott McKenzie in May 2008. The novel has a distinct modern day mafia appeal to it and the inspiration came from watching all the cult mafia movies as she grew up. J Lou is currently in the process of writing her third novel and hopes to one day be able to give up her day job as an Admin Support Officer for the Adult Social Care Team at her local hospital. Her life time ambition is to write full time continuing to give pleasure and entertainment to all her readers for many years to come.|| |
