Jane Golden, author of SECRETS IN THE VINES and DANUBE DEFIANCE, was born with an inherent sense of adventure.
After practicing law for many years, she was
unexpectedly thrust into the role of a diplomat wife in Eastern Europe. Much of
the background material in her books is borrowed from personal travel
experiences, including humorous insights and unique perspectives gained upon
arrival in Bucharest. Jane’s profound insights into the Romanian culture are
eye opening in both books, igniting the curiosity of the reader while providing
Jane hopes her books, which are complete works of fiction, will disabuse Western readers of the "vampire" image of Romania and introduce the world to the beautiful, intriguing and lighter sides of the country and its people. Rich wines, a colorful culture, and great friends are all woven together in her travel mystery novels just as they were for her in real life.
At a time when our news sources paint a bleak picture of a frightening world and many people are afraid to travel, Jane Golden’s travel mystery books are intended to offer up kinder, gentler places on earth which still exist and are worthy of a visit or extended vacation.
