Roberta Leigh

(Janey Scott Lewin)
UK

aka Rozella Lake, Rachel Lindsay, Janey Scott

Janey Scott was born in London, England. She developed a big interest inart. In 1948, she married Michael Lewin and they had a son, Jeremy.

She began writing with her first published romance novel in 1950, and shecontinued published romance novels as Roberta Leigh, Rachel Lindsay,Roumelia Lane and Rozella Lake and as her maiden name Janey Scott. She was one of the firstwriters to introduce strong career-minded heroines who wouldn't be bossedaround by the hero.

She had her own film company and wrote and produced 7 TV series forchildren: Twizzle, Sarah & Hoppity, Torchy and Space Patrol etc. As well aswriting the stories, Roberta Leigh also 'wrote' the music for her series,although this usually involved her humming or singing the tune into a taperecorder, after which someone else would arrange and write a score.

She studied painting with Diana Raphael and Michael Chaitow, and theyawakened her interest in abstract art. Her medium is oil, and watercolour inits various forms. This is done either on paper, or paper bonded on canvasor on board. Her work is deeply emotional, and during a painting sessionmany paintings may be discarded before a state of transcendental calm isobtained. Only then does the true process of creation begin. Her firstexhibition was held at the home of Robert Brenner, founder of the Instituteof Safety Analysis, Washington DC and the commissions which followed delayedher next exhibition for two years. This was at the Podbury Gallery inLondon where she remained until the owner retired. She then went toFinnegans Gallery in Mayfair, and remained there until it closed due toWendy Finnegan's ill health.

She now works privately for clients in England, North America andSwitzerland. But, romantic fiction has a special place in her life. Shelives in London, loves children, dogs and cats and, since the death of herhusband, finds her romance in the books.
