Jane Rogers was born in 1952 in London, the daughter of academic parents whose frequent moves led to her living by turn in London, Birmingham, Oxford, Copenhagen and New York. She read English at Cambridge and after graduating she qualified as a teacher at Leicester University. She began a career as an English teacher in secondary schools and further education, and also in a children's home and a mental hospital. She became a full time writer when her first child was born, which coincided with the publication of Separate Tracks (1983). She is married to the playwright Mike Harris, and lives in Manchester, England. She has worked as a Writing Fellow on university and college creative writing courses in the north of England.
