Jan Garsden

Although this is Jan’s first book, her story is both powerful and moving. She was first a model and a beauty queen, then an air hostess, and finally an interior designer. She and her family decided to “give something back” and began fostering in 2007.

Jan lives on a farm in the beautiful Cheshire countryside.
