Jane Bow grew up in Canada, the United States, Spain, England and Czechoslovakia. Her novels, ranging from true crime to mystery to love, explore the effect history’s dramas have on our identity, whether we know about them or not.
Cally’s Way, published in 2014, interweaves Cally’s story with that of her grandmother Callisto, who was a runner in the Cretan Resistance during the Germans’ brutal World War II occupation of Greece. Kirkus called it “accomplished, lyrical... romantic but tough-minded.” Cally’s Way reached #2 on Edmonton’s bestseller list and was invited to the U.K.’s Folkestone Book Festival. Jane’s second novel, The Oak Island Affair, a 2008 Next Generation Indie Book Award finalist, was republished by Iguana in 2014. Her first novel, Dead and Living, was shortlisted for an Arthur Ellis Award.
