Pleased to report that a US publisher has shown interest in some of my humorous articles for an anthology Smile.

Hoping the anthology will be out soon Smile. It's published by My Funny Books and it's titled Major Medical. They have taken three of the articles from Something to Read on the Plane

Major Medical is about to be sent to the printers. This is the bio they've used for my stories.

Jan Hurst-Nicholson wrote for South African magazines for years, much of it compiled into Something to Read on the Plane. Her humorous novel on adapting from Liverpool to Durban, But Can You Drink The Water? has been joined by award-winning Leon Chameleon PI children's books, YA Mystery: Mystery At Ocean Drive, and the family saga The Breadwinners, as well as many other books from Penguin and Cambridge University Press. Jan's writing also appears in Edge Words (stories from the Cheshire Prize for Literature), Chicken Soup, and Summer Shorts. She lives in Durban with two dogs that are forever on the wrong side of the door, an elderly cat, and the occasional visiting troop of boisterous vervet monkeys.
