About the Author and Book

Jane Green is published in over 25 languages and has over ten million books in print worldwide. She has been part of the ABC News team covering royal weddings, has had her own radio show on BBC Radio London, and has made regular appearances on TV and radio. She contributes to a number of newspapers and magazines and is a graduate of the International Culinary Institute in New York.

Jane is an avid cook, amateur decorator, and passionate gardener. She is also a regular storyteller for The Moth. Her first story for The Moth, Greener Grass, was videotaped and subsequently went viral on Facebook, with over three million views.

In her first novel inspired by a true story, Sister Stardust, Jane re-imagines the life of troubled icon Talitha Getty in this transporting story from a forgotten chapter of the Swinging ’60s

From afar Talitha’s life seemed perfect. In her twenties, and already a famous model and actress, she moved from London to a palace in Marrakesh, with her husband Paul Getty, the famous oil heir. There she presided over a swirling ex-pat scene filled with music, art, free love, and a counterculture taking root across the world.

When Claire arrives in London from her small town, she never expects to cross paths with a woman as magnetic as Talitha Getty. Yearning for adventure and independence, she’s swept off to Marrakesh, where the two become kindred spirits. But beneath Talitha’s glamourous facade lurks darkness few can understand. As their friendship blossoms and the two grow closer, the realities of Talitha’s precarious existence set off a chain of dangerous events that could alter Claire’s life forever.

Rancho La Puerta is a Wellness Resort and Spa located at the base of Mt. Kuchumaa in Baja California. The Ranch’s 4,000 acres include 40 miles of hiking trails, 32 acres of beautifully landscaped gardens, and an organic farm with a cooking school. They have eleven gyms, four pools, a running track, as well as tennis, Pickleball, basketball and volleyball courts. There are three full-service holistic spas.

Guests stay in 86 individual casitas peppered throughout the resort. As you walk winding brick paths, you’ll happen upon a wine bar, juice bar or art studio. There are countless indoor and outdoor gathering spaces, as well as WiFi lounges for dedicated screen time.

As you wander further, you’ll discover a labyrinth, reflexology path and three dozen hammocks slung between the oaks. The Ranch is more than a resort; it’s a retreat. It’s not only exercise; it’s a lifestyle. It’s fellowship that leads to friendship.
