Jane Bow grew up in Canada, the United States, Spain, England, the Czech Republic and Cuba.

She now lives with her husband in Peterborough. Her first novel, Dead And Living, was shortlisted for an Arthur Ellis Award, and selected for a Carleton University course in 2002. The Oak Island Affair, her second novel, was a 2008 U.S. Next Generation Indie Book award finalist. For more information about Cally’s Way, published in March, 2014, please visit
