The Crime Readers' Association

Jane McParkes


Jane’s entire adult life has been financed by crime. She began her career in HM Customs & Excise, before going over to the dark side and working in tax planning for a major accountancy firm. She married a criminal barrister who has always stayed on the right side of the law and is now a judge. As a result, she feels that her decision to write in the crime genre came quite naturally

After years of secret scribbling, lots of reading and one small success in flash fiction, Jane began writing A Deadly Inheritance. A cancer diagnosis and the Covid epidemic eventually focused her mind on finishing her novel, and she enjoyed writing as a means of escape from the grim reality of what was going on in the world.

A Deadly Inheritance is the first book in a new contemporary cosy crime series and combines Jane’s love of Cornwall, murder mysteries and her interest the environment, sustainability and creativity.
