Name: Jayne Raven. Lives in Brighton, has three children and two grandchildren; has done some odd things but generally came through all right. Actually quite friendly. Requires coffee in the morning.
I studied English Literature and after obtaining a First Class honours degree, went on to study at Queen Mary College, London.
I wrote a couple of novels (pen name Charlie Raven: check out www.theravensbunker.com, a website I share with writer and long-time fellow conspirator Rohase Piercy); and several more, which got hidden in the bottom of a wardrobe, shat on by the cat and are now lost.
In 1999, I studied for a Diploma in Hypnotherapy and Psychotherapy (D.Hyp.Psych) and have been in practice on and off (‘off’ being gaps for children) for the last twenty years. Hypnotherapy ties in with my fascination with unconscious symbols, Jungian studies and archetypes. I’ve always been interested in folktale, mythology and how the magic of story creates paths through our troubles as it heals and revives us. Love the mysterious, the eerie and the ghostly. Just love a good story, basically. Don't hesitate to contact me for friendly advice.
I've been lucky to work with some talented authors - we've got a blog coming soon for Weird Sisters, Ink.
