Janet Tennant spent many years lecturing, researching, and training in Europe and beyond, focusing on improving workplace relationships. Tennant's fascination with cross-dressing originated in her experiences as an amateur actor, often playing the glamorous prince in pantomime and less glamorous male roles in girls’ school Shakespeare productions. She has four grown children and lives with her partner in Lichfield, UK.

She successfully brings together the numerous and diverse strands that have influenced and created modern day ‘cross-dressing’ performance in an accessible and highly readable manner."—Alison Young, writer and researcher, Secretary of the British Music Hall Society—
