More About Jane Orcutt
Award-winning Christian author Jane Orcutt was born on January 25th, 1960, in Fort Worth, Texas. Born with a serious heart defect, Jane faced surgeries and long recoveries from the age of five. But these solitary times only strengthened Jane s love for reading, and her dream of one day becoming a writer. Jane achieved that dream with style, not only as a popular Christian novelist with fourteen published books to her credit, but also through her mentorship of many young writers. Throughout Jane s life, she enjoyed writing about her home state of Texas. She was particularly talented at breathing life into historical time periods and she brought a fresh view of the bluebonnet state to her readers worldwide. As a University of Texas graduate, she possessed a broad range of writing and editing skills, which she used in her own writing, as a production worker for an Austin television station, and as an editor for a Forth Worth publishing company. In 1982, Jane married Bill Orcutt. They had two sons, Colin and Sam, whom Jane homeschooled until they reached high school. Jane often stated that this accomplishment was her pride and joy. She was passionate about helping her sons explore their interests and intellect while allowing them to grow into individual men of their own account. Jane was a loyal and loving wife, mother, daughter, and sister, a witty and sought-after friend, a powerful writer, and a tender pet owner. Most of all Jane was a follower and lover of Jesus Christ. On Sunday, March 18, 2007, after a long battle with acute myeloid leukemia, Jane stepped into the arms of her Savior. She now rests safely in His arms, while her powerful legacy lives on through her family and through her books.
Jane Orcutt lived in the state of Texas. Jane Orcutt was born in 1960 and died in 2007.
Reviews - What do customers think about All the Tea in China (Rollicking Regency Series #1)?
Rollicking Fun! Mar 21, 2007
"All the Tea in China" is certainly a rollicking read! Isabella is left "an old maid" when she is unable to make herself conform to Regency society's rigid idea of what a desirable young woman should be. When a mysterious missionary comes collecting money to support his work in China, Isabella is certain she has been called to go with him. Of course, nothing is as she expects it to be, especially the missionary. Don't miss this one!
Fun, Inspiring Read! Mar 21, 2007
With its rich detail and saucy characters, All the Tea in China is fun romp around Cape Horn and into China. I loved the spunk of Isabella, the mystery of Phineas, and the allure of a country so distant from our own. Hats off to Jane Orcutt for such an enjoyable read!
