Bringing the Past to Life: A Conversation with Novelist Jane Healey

February 1, 2021
On this installment of Making Media Now, we celebrate a first: an interview with a novelist, in this case it’s best-selling novelist Jane Healey.  We’re all about conversing with, as we say, ‘media makers of all sorts’….and seeing whereas books were certainly among the first forms of “media,” chatting with a novelist certainly makes sense…and makes for a lively and interesting conversation.  

When her daughters were born, Jane Healey left a career in high tech to become a freelance writer. Her passion for historical fiction became her new career when her first novel THE SATURDAY EVENING GIRLS CLUB was published in 2017. With the release of THE BEANTOWN GIRLS in 2019, Jane continued to fulfill her dream of writing lesser known stories of women in history. 

Jane's upcoming novel THE SECRET STEALERS is based on the true stories of the women of the Office of Strategic Services, the precursor to the CIA, during World War II. It will be released in April 2021. (
