About Jean Watson

Under the surnames of Watson and Cheesman, Jean was on the staff of schools and universities in the UK and Australia. Her main subject was Geography but she also taught English and the two disciplines are the basis of her well-written, interesting novels. The stories of Jang are based on her visit to New Guinea many years ago with an Australian research team studying the people of that island. One of the areas visited was the remote Baliem Valley in what was then called Irian Jaya (now West Papua) where she met and admired the Dani people. 'Jang' was a young teenager who guided her through the valley and taught her a great deal, although they had no common language. Luckily, their Australian guide could translate for them. On returning home, the team produced educational material for students of Geography, but Jean decided to take it further and use her knowledge and imagination to write works of fiction, based on the facts she had learned about the Dani tribes first-hand and from other writers.
