Author A to Z

Janice Horton writes contemporary romantic fiction with a dash of humour and a sense of adventure. When not writing novels she writes lifestyle articles and travel features and has had work published in regional newspapers, national and international magazines, and in Romance Matters - the magazine of the Romantic Novelists’ Association.

Janice is a senior editor with award-winning lifestyle e-magazine Loveahappyending.com (LLm). She has also been involved in BBC Scotland’s ‘Write Here Write Now’ project and her novel approach to research has featured on ITV television in the UK.

In 2014, once her three children had grown up and left home, Janice set off with her husband to explore the Caribbean. In 2015 they returned to the UK only to sell all their material possessions in favour of travelling around the world. Since then they have been travelling full-time, living out of their backpacks or a rented apartment or a simple hut, wherever they happen to find themselves.

In 2015, her bestselling novel Castaway in the Caribbean was shortlisted in the UK’s Love Stories Awards.

Janice also writes romantic-comedy under the pen name of Janey Travis.

She has been a full member of the Romantic Novelists’ Association since 2004.
