Biography

Porter is the bestselling author of over 30 novels. The Romance Writers of America awarded Porter the Golden Heart in Long Contemporary Fiction category in 1998. Her first novel, The Italian Groom, was published by Harlequin in 2001. She won the Golden Heart in 1998 with her long contemporary series romance, All-Around Cowboy -- a book that she didn't ultimately sell. She has been a finalist for the prestigious RITA award from Romance Writers of America in 2002, 2003, 2008 and 2010. Porter’s July '06 release, Flirting With Forty, picked by Redbook Magazine as its Red Hot Summer Read, went back for seven printings in six weeks before being made into a December 08 Lifetime movie starring Heather Locklear.

A former English teacher, Jane holds a Bachelors degree from UCLA in American Studies, a program that combines American literature and American history, and an MA in Writing from the University of San Francisco. She makes her home in Bellevue, Washington.
