Jo was born in St. Louis, Missouri. She has served as a stock broker, corporate trainer, junior college finance instructor, and highschool business teacher. After being nominated for numerous special projects, she discovered all paths lead to writing. At least for her.
She currently writes high stakes romance with heroes willing to risk it all for love. A typical day finds her with a laptop balanced on her knees, a diet Pepsi within reach, and a cat nearby who dreams of taking over the world.
She is presently writing three series:
The Vikings Saga is a serial novel involving a group of plundering exploreres and their struggle to return to the mystical city of New Dorset. They battle their way through black magic, brutal ambushes, and the trials of love.
The Lost Colony Series is set in 1587 and based on the Lost Colonists of Roanoke Island. It reveals the hope and sacrifice, love and betrayal, courage and despair of a group of pioneers who refused to quit.
Jo plans to reveal her first contemporary romance series Summer/Fall, 2015.
