Australian author.

According to Jan Pearson's Amazon author page, 'Jan Pearson spent her early childhood in the wild and woolly Australian post-war city of Darwin before her parents moved to Singapore, followed by living in Hong Kong for several years. Falling for Hong Kong has remained a life-long passion for this writer who returns most years for a visit and whose memories of the city in more vintage times provide the backdrop for a series of fast paced, entertaining murder/mysteries.'
