Jane Hamilton was born on 15 september 1965. After six years working as a software tester for CompuServe Inc., she's working as a Business Analyst for the State of Ohio. In her past she also has traveled with an alternative rock band and currently volunteers for her local police department as a photographer. She left the world of big business to carry on conversations with the people who live in her mind, fictional characters that is. She writes her novels according to her mood - if she's feeling dark and dangerous, she writes as J. C. Wilder, and if she's feeling sassy and brazen, she writes as Dominieque Adair.
She lives in Westerville, Central Ohio where she's owned by a Japanese Akita named Severena and a really obnoxious Jack Russell Terrier named Copper Penny. She spends the majority of her time dusting her 6,000 books and staring at her blank computer screen in complete terror. When not writing, she devotes much of her time to studying the medicinal uses of herbs and essential oils.
