Jane Campbell was born in Hoylake (Wirral) in 1942. She grew up in Northern Rhodesia (Zambia) and was schooled in Cape Town. After reading English at St Hugh's College, Oxford, she married and moved to Bermuda. After 16 years she returned to Oxford where she took a post-graduate degree in Applied Social Science. She trained at the Institute of Group Analysis where she is now a Training Group Analyst. She has had a Private Practice in Oxford since then and for 20 years worked as a co-director of a part-time postgraduate training leading to an MSc Group Psychotherapy (OBU). Four years ago she sent a short story, 'Cat-Brushing’, to the London Review of Books, who published it. She has now written a collection of short stories about the experiences of the older woman which will be published by Riverrun / Quercus in the UK in July 2022. She is now living in Bermuda again for much of the year.
