Best selling author Jana Petken is British but lives in Spain, in the port of Denia, on the Costa Blanca. She served in the (British) Royal Navy as a leading Wren Regulator. After the Navy she worked for a travel company as an overseas representative travelling around the world, eventually becoming a cabin-crew member for British Airways. Unfortunately, she suffered serious injuries on board a flight. The aircraft, a Boeing 747, was flying at 39,000 feet above Africa when it was caught in clear-air turbulence. As a result of that accident, she endured three major operations on her spinal cord, and was forced into early retirement. When does Jana Petken find time to write?
