Who I am
In this policy whenever you see the terms ‘I’, ‘Me’ or ‘My,’ it refers to J A Browne (Author and Blogger)

I am the author of The Earth Chronicles series. My first novel for middle-grade and above is Hannah & the Hollow Tree, out in Autumn 2018. As an indie-author, I also blog about how I am publishing my books independently and my thoughts upon being a writer, whilst still being a teacher. 

I will graduate in December 2018 with an MA in Creative Writing from Leeds Trinity University.
