TITLE: CONFESSIONS OF A HOME GROWN ALIEN

AUTHOR JAN SMITH

 

ABOUT THE BOOK AND AUTHOR

Jan Smith is the author of two novels, An Ornament of Grace (Sun Books, 1966) and The Worshipful Company (Cassell, 1969), and co-author, with Dr William Vayda, of Health for Life: Are You Allergic to the Twentieth Century?  (Sphere Books, 1981)
After dropping out of the University of Queensland and working as a cadet  journalist on The Courier Mail Jan went to  Sydney and joined Woman's Day magazine. After three years on Woman’s Day, she was forced to resign because she had married a staff member,  and for the next fifty years survived by freelancing, notably for The Bulletin and Pol magazine, apart from a year on Forum UK, the sex magazine, and Australian Business.
She now lives happily in Kings Cross, Sydney,  with her cat, doing what she’d have rather done all along.
