After nearly a decade of promoting writers, Jane Heller launched her own career as a successful novelist. Her comic, breezy tales are now entertaining millions of readers around the world.
Heller entered the field of book publishing as an assistant in the publicity department at Coward, McCann & Geoghegan, and rose to the positions of publicity manager at New American Library, publicity director at Dell/Delacorte, and vice president and director of advertising, promotion and publicity at Jove. Authors with whom she worked include such bestselling novelists as Danielle Steel, Stephen King, Judy Blume, John Jakes, Mary Higgins Clark and Erica Jong.
Her first novel, Cha Cha Cha, published by Kensington in 1994, was a selection of the Literary Guild and Doubleday Book Club and was optioned for a television movie by Columbia/TriStar.
One of six children, Heller grew up in Scarsdale, New York, attended Scarsdale High School, and earned a B.A. in classics from the University of Rochester, where she received Summa Cum Laude honors and was elected to the Phi Beta Kappa Society. The following year, she completed one year of a Master's Program at the University of Pennsylvania's Annenberg School of Communications.
Currently, Jane lives in Santa Barbara with her husband, an architectural photographer.
