NOVELIST Jane Lovering has been shortlisted in two separate categories the 2018 Romantic Novel Awards (RoNAs).
Jane, who lives in Kirkbymoorside, previously won the Romantic Novel of the Year in 2012, and is one of six finalists in the Romantic Comedy Novel category, for consistently humorous or amusing novels.
Her novel The Little Teashop of Horrors, published by Choc Lit, is set in North Yorkshire and is loosely based on Nunnington Hall, a local National Trust property.
Jane also received inspiration from the Duncombe Park International Birds of Prey Centre.
Jane’s second nomination is for Christmas at the Little Village School, also published by Choc Lit; one of five finalists in the RoNA Rose Award category, which recognises the best in category/series and shorter romance that focus on developing a love affair between the hero and heroine.
