Introducing author Jane Bwye:
Although I was born here in the UK, at the age of three I went with my parents to Kenya via Calcutta after WW2. I was brought up in that wonderful country, went to school there, got into Oxford, but left early because I was so homesick; I got married, was widowed with a 6-month old daughter, then I had twins; I remarried, and we brought up our six children in Kenya.
I fulfilled one of my dreams by riding with my family over the hills and far away. Another dream was to travel round the world, which I did for ten months, before my 60th birthday. You can read more about my travels on my blog if you follow this link: https://jbwye.com/category/travels/
However, please be aware that the nature of a blog dictates that the latest post is read first!
This photo was taken in Kathmandu, Nepal in 2001, towards the end of my westward journey, during which I walked many miles. The solar hat was the catalyst for several chance conversations.
My third dream was to write a book, and have it published by a REAL publisher. After seven years of searching, Crooked Cat Books and I found each other.
Dreams do come true, if you don’t give up.
These two books form a family saga, set mainly in Kenya, covering the years from the 1950’s (the Mau Mau emergency) up to present times. They contain love stories and will give you psychological thrills; they explore interactions between people of different races and they address the thorny problems of charity and foreign aid; superstition and Christian faith clash; and the stunning beauty of the country is a major character in itself.
