Diane Janes (You the Jury)

  • lives in Devon and lectures on crime and social history to a wide variety of audiences
  • award winning author of five highly regarded crime novels and four respected factual books on real life historical murders.
  • her first work of non-fiction, Edwardian Murder: Ightham & the Morpeth Train Robbery is actually referenced in academic text books on the history of policing
Diane has personally researched each of the real cases chosen for her ‘You the Jury’ course, which is open to anyone who is interested in immersing themselves safely in the world of crime.
We’ll post some more info on the You the Jury course when we get it – but, if the response to it down south is anything to go by, it could become a popular course up here when it is established. We’ll certainly do our best!
