Newsroom Eyes
Jane Ryland
Created by Hank Phillipi Ryan

Hard-headed, principled Boston reporter JANE RYLAND was canned from her plush TV gig for refusing to reveal a source, but that doesn't seem to have slowed her down very much -- she still has a nose for dirt, and the fecund fields of Beantown politics gives her more than enough material to work with in her new career as a reporter for The Boston Register, a second string local paper. And, of course, it doesn't hurt that her hunky not-quite-lover Detective Jake Brogan's cases seem to always somehow overlap with the stories she's working on...

Brefore turning to crime (fiction), Hank Phillippi Ryan was an award-winning investigative reporter for Boston's NBC affiliate. Not that her current career is exactly award-free -- she's won or been nominated for Agathas. Anthony's, Macavitys, RITAs and, with the introduction of Jane Ryland as a series character, she seems to be aiming for Shamueses as well.
