RIP: Jean Saunders

I was very sorry to hear of author Jean Saunders's death last week. A prolific author of many fiction, non-fiction books and short stories, Jean was also known by her pen names: ROWENA SUMMERS, RACHEL MOORE, JEAN INNES, SALLY BLAKE and JODI NICOL. Although many a saga author, Jean also wrote crime (published by Robert Hale, a UK library publisher) and the odd erotica story.

For more about Jean you can visit her website:

Some of the books Jean wrote:


  1. I'm sorry to see this. I've attended some of Jean's workshops and courses on saga writing and always found them tremendously well prepared and presented and full of helpful information.

  2. Indeed, a very sad loss. She was a very respected writer and lovely lady.

  3. Sad news she wrote wonderful books i will really miss her lovely books. xxxx

  4. I only learned of Jean's death today. First met her at an RWA conference. I have many of her books. A lovely person and fantastic writer/teacher.
