About Jo

I've been carrying a pen around all my life. I've had a few adventures (ask me about the scorpion in the shower sometime), I've lived a little and now I've settled in Auckland, New Zealand with a happy-go-lucky group of 2-legged and 4-legged companions. My accent is still very British and I love a good cup of tea. My relationship with my laptop is worryingly close and it makes my day if I can entertain you.

There is nothing better than a new place to explore or new people to meet, except perhaps the bird song on Tiritiri Matangi, a long soak in a warm bath or a decent hot chocolate (I can be bribed).

Events in my own life are often the starting inspiration for a story, even if its as small and simple as seeing a wild parrot in London or sneaking into a posh resort in the Cook Islands. After that it comes down to my imagination and a good dictionary.

I belong to Romance Writers of New Zealand, an amazing, supportive group who I am constantly learning from. We welcome new members so please get in touch if you are interested in finding out more or click on the logo below.
