Author’s Biography


Jane Tulloch (pen name) was born in Edinburgh and has lived there ever since. Under her professional name however, she has travelled widely mostly in relation to her day job working with adults with autism. These travels have taken her to the USA, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Bangladesh, South Africa and various points in between. She writes for relaxation from her work in this demanding but fascinating field. She has worked for the NHS for 30 years but, before this, worked in a large department store which provided the inspiration for the Murrays series of books. Subsequent to their publication, she has been invited to visit the archives of old department stores and has been given historical ephemera relating to various of these fine establishments.  Using information gathered in this way she has  lectured on the ‘Disappeared Department Stores of Edinburgh’.

She also writes short stories for the People’s Friend weekly magazine.

She lives with her husband, giant cat and occasional welcome interruption by boisterous grandsons.
