About Jan Gordon

Jan Gordon grew up in London, England, and emigrated to Israel in her early twenties. After many years of working as a secretary in various media companies, both in the U.K. and Israel, she took time off to raise her two sons.

In 2006, after many years of reading fanfiction for an old American TV series, Scarecrow & Mrs. King, she decided to pick up her pen, or rather her keyboard, and wrote her first story, a collaboration with another fanfiction writer, Amy F. (TwoPhantoms1), and the writing partnership of The Yank and The Brit was born. Three years later Jan answered a writing challenge on a fan site for that same TV show and wrote a short original piece and posted it to the group. The characters in that story wouldn’t leave her alone and eventually she gave in and wrote their story. That story was “Black Silk”, a paranormal romance about were panthers.

Jan posted “Black Silk” on the fan site and it received such a good reception from the other members, she branched out and posted it on other sites, including Smashwords. One of the members of the fan site, another fanfiction writer, Charlie, made a comment in her review of the shifter story that sparked an idea, and in reply Jan told her she should use that concept in a story because it sounded fantastic. That ‘idea’ became “Forever In Time” by, the newly named, Nicky Charles. After Nicky’s first two books, Jan started working with her as editor and neither has looked back since.

Jan has since written “Life In The Shadows”, a paranormal romance anthology and a prequel, of sorts, to “Black Silk”. Nicky Charles collaborated with Jan on one of the stories in “Life In The Shadows” which combined her wolves and Jan’s panthers. They enjoyed the endeavour so much that they decided to repeat the experience – the result was “In The Cards”.

Jan Gordon now lives in Jerusalem, Israel, with her husband and two adult sons. She and her husband often travel to North America and the U.K. to see family and friends. Although Jan both writes and edits paranormal romance, she rarely reads that genre for pleasure. Since discovering author Georgette Heyer as a young teen, her passion for reading Regency romance has never dimmed. Apart from reading, which she does whenever time allows, her other favourite pastimes are cooking and doing Pilates.

Really thought i would enjoy this story based on the reviews but couldn't even get myself to finish the book. My main issue was with the writing style because the book is only written from one characters perspective it made it really annoying and boring to read. A different narrative would have created the tension and chemistry between the two characters which this book lacked. I am a sucker for a paranormal romance but this one was really dissappointing

Black Silk is a great novella with the perfect mix of romance, suspense and, of course, a paranormal twist. I can't wait until Jan Gordon publishes a sequel!

Having read Black Silk some time while ago I was so please to find Jan had written another novel as I so admire her work with Nicky Charles.

Black Silk is a beautiful love story with a strong female lead who over comes life's pitfalls.

My one wish? Please Jan tap those keys more often, you have talent.

I wanted to love this story. It had a good framework and plot, but it needed more depth and character development. Parts of it felt rushed and lacked the detail that makes a good story great.

I enjoyed the read. I liked getting to know the character before I was immersed fully in the romance. I was happy when she found someone special to help her get past her less than wonderful life. It had a touch of suspense and ends with a surprise. Good paranormal romance, I would recommend it to those that love the genre.

This was a very easy read, a very simple storyline, and it didn't have much depth. But, I have to say that I thoroughly enjoyed it. Since I haven't read a book of this genre in many many years, this is my first intro back to anything paranomal/romance. The characters were believable, and nothing happened throughout the story that would make me say "yea right". I'm guessing that Jan Gordon is a new author, and if so, I would eagerly read any new books she writes in the future.
