Jane Lewis dreamed of being a romance writer since she read her first romance novel. She wrote articles for her school newspaper, articles for a music magazine and composed and arranged music.
Writing a novel was put on hold because work as a Musician, Teacher and Analyst and Manager at a large railroad corporation consumed her time. She graduated cum laude from Kennesaw State University with a Bachelor of Arts in Music.
When she isn’t writing her next romance, she enjoys cooking, tending her rose garden, playing music, weight training, yoga and bowling with her real-life hero, her husband. She and her husband live in a suburb outside of Atlanta. She is a PAN member of Romance Writers of America and Georgia Romance Writers. She was a 2016 finalist in the Hearts Through History, Post-Victorian/World War II category for her first romance novel, Love At Five Thousand Feet.

Love At Five Thousand Feet Summary:
After her mother’s death, Dottie Lester moves to her parent’s hometown of Saplingville, Georgia with her alcoholic father. She wants to escape and go to live with her aunt in Macon, but first, she must get her father settled in his new job. When Dottie meets a handsome pilot and falls in love, her goal changes, but it is still no match for his desire to leave their small town behind and fly for a commercial airline.
Victor Douglas, United States Army Air Corps pilot, returns to Saplingville to help his ailing father. He has been flying his own JN-4 Jenny bi-plane for years. That and his army experience qualify him to apply for a job as a commercial airline pilot and win a coveted job offer, but how can he leave his father now, or a budding romance with the pretty new girl in town?
Her love of flying, and her love for Victor intensified as the bi-plane ascended. She rode high above the earth with him at the controls of her life and her heart. A disappointment crept over her when she spotted the runway and recognized the now familiar descent of the bi-plane.
The church steeple loomed at them.
The bi-plane banked to the left, the boarding house below them. As they flew over Main Street, the plane rose to a higher altitude.
She peered from side to side observing the earth from a perspective she’d never dreamed about. The thick green forests would open to a lake or pasture then another forest would come into view. The vibration of the bi-plane swept through her body, dulling her senses. She closed her eyes and relaxed against the seat. She had no idea how long they’d been in the air.
The humming of the wires changed to a higher pitch. The airplane picked up speed. She grabbed the sides of the seat as fear clutched her heart. She closed her eyes and prayed. The bi-plane hit the pasture with a bounce before coming to a stop close to the shed.
Victor turned off the engine. He stepped out, climbed on the plane beside the seat and reached for Dottie’s hand to help her out.
He jumped off the wing, grabbed her around the waist, and set her in front of him. Without saying a word, he took her face in his hands. He bent to kiss her. Her legs were weak from flying. She hadn’t gotten used to being on land. When he kissed her, it was as if she were in a whirlpool, the earth spinning around her.
She swayed, Victor steadied her. “Well, how do you like it?”
She tightened her hold on his arm as the earth turned beneath her. “What, the flying?”
He pulled the aviator cap off her head. “Yes the flying.”
“I was scared at first, but when we got in the air, I relaxed and enjoyed the ride.”
