Jo grew up in North London, where she met her husband and later they moved to Dorset.
She has worked with young children in nurseries and pre-schools and holds qualifications in Montessori education and childcare.
She now works as a qualified holistic and beauty therapist and finds her work very rewarding. She has three children and four grandchildren whom she likes to spend time with. Writing for children is something she has always been interested in and a holiday last year gave her the opportunity to make a start.
