About this author

Joanne Phillips lives in rural Shropshire with her husband and young daughter. She’s the author of romantic comedies Can’t Live Without and The Family Trap, and the Flora Lively series of mysteries. Can’t Live Without was an Amazon top 20 bestseller in 2012 and her books regularly appear on category bestseller lists. Before becoming a writer, Joanne had jobs as diverse as hairdresser, air hostess and librarian, but now divides her time between writing and finding creative ways to avoid housework. She’s a fan of super-dark chocolate, iced coffee and Masterchef. Joanne blogs about writing and publishing at www.writersjourney.co.uk

“Real life is not a love story. It’s a series of tough decisions, disappointments and compromise. It ain’t glamorous or fluffy, and it doesn’t always have a happy ending. We live. And we learn. And sometimes that’s the best we can hope for.”
Joanne Phillips, The Family Trap

“Get it out of me. Get. It. Out.”
Joanne Phillips, The Family Trap
