Jo Allison loves to write historical fiction. In fact, she drives librarians and family crazy with her attention to historical detail. But readers love to be transported back a hundred years.

The Julia Nye Mystery series is set in 1910s St. Louis and Allison offers details on the time and city in a website, 1910s-stlouis-by-jallison.com.

Although her genres are mystery/suspense--and a new spy novel--her work is very character-driven.

Allison works from her home in Bristol, Virginia, with lots of trips to historical sites and libraries.
