About Janet K L Searl - Public Speaker...
Brought up in Lancashire, Jan went to boarding school in Wales then a language college in Switzerland. Ski-ing figured largely in free time, the nearest slopes a short distance from the class room! Secretarial college in London was the final tranche of education, the skill of touch typing proving extremely useful in later life. In 1990 Jan and her husband bought the site of an old manor house in East Dorset. Research proved that records for ‘Uddens’ went back to Saxon times. Using more than twenty-five years of research Jan has written several historical novels, The King’s Chalice trilogy, about the manor and towns in East Dorset published by Bretwalda Books. A non-fiction book about Colehill, the high ground above Wimborne, has just been published. Jan leads a Discussion group with Wimborne U3A, volunteers at the local community run library and teaches Local History classes.
