Jane Hardstaff: The Executioner’s Daughter, River Daughter

Jane grew up in Wiltshire with her brothers, hunting mayfly-nymphs with her father and reading fairytales with her mother. Now she lives in London’s East End, near the great, wild River Thames – the inspiration for her books. Alex O’Connell of The Times called her ‘A strong new voice in children’s fiction.’ The Executioner’s Daughter was nominated for the Branford Boase Award, shortlisted for The Oxfordshire Book Award and the Salford Children’s Book Award and won the Salisbury Schools Book Awards.
