Jane Gordon has worked in education for nearly forty years in various positions. She has also worked as an actor for TV, film and stage. However, Jane has now turned her hand to writing and has written three feature films. Her first film script is based on the autobiography written by vaudeville jazz singer Pat Thompson. The second film script is called Collision, and looks at unusual family groupings and the bond that glues them together. The third in the form of a treatment was written for the South African Production Co. Giant Films. It is based on the book The Elephant Whisperer and is about Lawrence Anthony's positive connection with a renegade herd of elephants. 

Film credits include Potoroo Blues, a short film created by Jane working with a group of marginalised youth.

Jane has just published her first children’s picture book Charley Goes Out which is part of a series called, Charley the Cheeky Echidna.  She is also part way through turning her travel blogs into a novel and working with English composer Andrew Brewis to turn the 1922 book Enchanted April into a Stage Musical.
