Sources:, The Independent, Liverpool Echo, Ian Wylie's MEN blog,

Scouser Jan McVerry wrote her first Coronation Street script in November 1997. She was the writer responsible for breaking Ashley Peacock's heart when Maxine died and more recently, for locking Tracy Barlow up for 15 long years.

Other TV writing credits include Emmerdale, Brookside, Children's Ward, Playing the Field, Clocking Off and Drop Dead Gorgeous (along with Corrie writer Carmel Morgan).

Jan left the Corrie writing team in 2000 and re-joined in April 2002 after the departure of Jane Macnaught. McVerry also wrote episodes of the Forsyte Saga and co-wrote the 2001 TV drama The Innocent which involved McVerry in detailed research with rape crisis centres.
