Jean Ure was born in Surrey on 1 January 1943, the daughter of William Ure and Vera Belsen. She trained at the Webber-Douglas Academy of Drama from 1965-8 and uses her experience of the theatre in many of her adult and children’s novels.

She married Leonard Gregory, a fellow drama student, in 1967. She has worked at a variety of casual jobs, ranging from waitressing to translating but has been a professional writer all her life, her first book, Dance for Two being published while she was still at school.
