Jo writes stories for Young Adults and Children. Though she considers herself a Yorkshire lass, she now lives in the Far North of New Zealand - decidedly more tropical than the north of England. She likes nothing better than a whole, uninterrupted day of writing, which she generally gets on her birthday. Hurray for birthdays!
