Jane Coloccia was born in a small town on the North Shore of Long Island and knew she wanted to write for as long as she could remember. In fact, she won a contest in the fourth grade for writing the most short stories within a certain period of time.

     While her Dad wished Jane would have majored in business or some other industry that would guarantee a good income, Jane was forthright about a journalism career.  She graduated at the top of her class from C.W. Post College of Long Island University with a Bachelor of Arts in Communications and a specialization in Broadcasting.  Her first job upon graduation was as the Assistant Travel Editor of Modern Bride Magazine.

     In 1990, Jane opened her own public relations and marketing communications agency at the age of 27 which she still operates to this day. She took two-and-a-half years off to go in-house as Director of Communications for The Leading Hotels of the World, and then returned to her business in 2002.

     Jane has authored articles for a number of national consumer and trade magazines including Modern Bride, Bridal Guide, Going Bonkers, Home by Design, Life by Design, The HSMAI Marketing Review, and Lodging Hospitality magazines.  She also produced an Off Broadway play in New York City entitled "The Secret Hunter."

      Jane's first book, Confessions of an Online Dating Addict: A True Account of Dating and Relating in the Internet Age was published in April 2008.  She has since appeared on CN8's "Your Morning" show and Australia's "Sunrise" morning show to promote the book and was also featured in a Reuters article which has been syndicated worldwide.  Jane has also done radio shows from Ireland to Seattle offering do's and don'ts for online dating.

      Jane currently lives in New Jersey with her dog, Sophie, and she is developing an online dating course for The Learning Annex.
