Jan Turk Petrie - Author

About the Author

As a writer, Jan Turk Petrie is always keen to challenge herself and come up with something original. 

Her first published novels – the three volumes that make up The Eldísvík Trilogy – are Nordic noir thrillers set some fifty years in the future. 

Her fourth novel - ‘Too Many Heroes’ – is, by contrast, a period romantic thriller set in the early 1950s. 

Jan’s fifth novel - ‘Towards the Vanishing Point’ is a work of historical literary fiction. 

Before becoming a writer, Jan was an English teacher in inner-city London. She has an M.A. in Creative Writing and has written numerous, prize-winning short stories

Jan is a fan of Margaret Atwood, Kate Atkinson, Philip Roth, Kurt Vonnegut and Jennifer Egan – authors who are prepared to take risks in their writing.
