Award-winning writer of romantic comedies. Collector of colorful, kitsch things that usually sparkle. Adidas addict, Depeche Mode devotee and proud Wattpad writer!


Jo loves telling stories and above everything, considers herself a storyteller- no matter what the medium.

She's mainly worked as a TV script writer and storyliner, she has written, directed and produced theater, adverts and film and has worked as a copywriter. She didn't intend on becoming an author and "accidentally" wrote her first book, Burning Moon, two years ago. And the rest, as they say, is history.


When Jo is not writing, she is binge watching TV, contemplating the nature of en

Coming soon BM


I remember exactly how I felt waiting to go into theatre for my c-section… the birth of my first child. I was naturally terrified and utterly mad with nerves; in a few moments doctors would be slicing me open, while I was wide awake, and then yanking a crying, kicking, small human out of my uterus!


I was nervous that I might feel it. I was nervous to become a mother. I was nervous for the painf...

Finding You by Jo Watson
"It’s not unusual for me to mention a current read to my friends and on occasion say, yeah, you’d like this one. Rarely though do I tell pretty much everyone I know “You’ve got to read this one.” Jo Watson’s FINDING YOU is one of those books I’ve j..." Read more of this review »
Finding You by Jo Watson
"This is my new favorite book! I loved the sarcasm, the awkwardness of Jane and all of her embarrassing moments. The author did a great job capturing exactly how each character was feeling in the book.

The plot: Jane goes to Greece to find her biol..." Read more of this review »

"An ending that made the book

Finding You is a cute romantic comedy wherein a rigid heroine is repeatedly forced from her comfort zone during a spur of the moment trip to Greece in search of her birth father. My favorite aspect of this series of st..." Read more of this review »

Up there with one of my favorite books of all time. And when it came to an end I actually had a tear in my eye, that is how invested I was in Bartholomew and his journey. This book not only has a great story, well developed and interesting characters ...more

“When pointing out the flaws in others, people always end up talking about themselves.”
Claire Chilton

Brian Greene
“The boldness of asking deep questions may require unforeseen flexibility if we are to accept the answers.”
Brian Greene, The Elegant Universe: Superstrings, Hidden Dimensions, and the Quest for the Ultimate Theory

Mary Higgins Clark
“When someone is mean to me, I just make them a victim in my next book.”
Mary Higgins Clark

Leonard Susskind
“There is a philosophy that says that if something is unobservable -- unobservable in principle -- it is not part of science. If there is no way to falsify or confirm a hypothesis, it belongs to the realm of metaphysical speculation, together with astrology and spiritualism. By that standard, most of the universe has no scientific reality -- it's just a figment of our imaginations.”
Leonard Susskind, The Black Hole War: My Battle with Stephen Hawking to Make the World Safe for Quantum Mechanics

Leonard Susskind
“the three-dimensional world of ordinary experience—the universe filled with galaxies, stars, planets, houses, boulders, and people—is a hologram, an image of reality coded on a distant two-dimensional surface. This new law of physics, known as the Holographic Principle, asserts that everything inside a region of space can be described by bits of information restricted to the boundary.”
Leonard Susskind, The Black Hole War: My Battle with Stephen Hawking to Make the World Safe for Quantum Mechanics
