Jane Riordan


Jane Riordan grew up next to, and often paddling in, the River Itchen in Hampshire.

Jane originally trained to be a primary school teacher but her love of children’s books led to a career in Publishing. She has been lucky enough to work on household names such as Paddington Bear, Mr Men, Thomas the Tank Engine, Tintin and Winnie-the-Pooh. Jane has edited and written countless books for children.

Jane lives in London with her partner and two children and loves to explore the capital and beyond by bike and on foot.
