Jo lives in the windy city of Port Elizabeth, South Africa, but considers herself a citizen of the world.
She lives with her husband Angus, a dog with an odd sense of humour, four birds (Parrots) and some chickens.
A self professed animal lover, especially feathered ones, Jo also admits to loving champagne, chocolate, any sort of cheese at all and most people.
She likes to read literary fiction, sci-fi/fantasy, and humour most of all, but has fallen in love with books from most genres at one time or another.
Jo writes mainly sci-fi/fantasy and mainstream fiction.
Other interests are human and animal rights, painting and poetry.
Jo admits that “Sometimes I’m very serious, and sometimes I really am not”.
