Jo was born in Colchester, Essex, in 1974 and since an early age has always been accused of having a wild imagination. This didnt stop her from studying for an honours degree in Cell and Molecular Biology, training as a science teacher, then go on to train as a Biomedical Scientist. She eventually took a post in Clinical Chemistry at Jersey General Hospital in the Channel Islands.

Whilst holding down a full time job, and working 28 hour emergency on call shifts, she has managed to find the time to share that wild imagination with the world by writing online fan fiction stories about the CW series Supernatural.

She enjoyed it so much that, with a lot of encouragement from her husband, she decided to write her own stories. Not an easy task for somone dogged by anxiety and depression, and since her diagnosis in 2013 she has also been battling with Ulcerative Colitis.

In spite of her struggles, Tales from the Forest, a series of short stories set in a magical realm, began to take physical form on her laptop screen, and her black labrador Nelson is a valiant hero in some of the stories. As an avid animal lover, she has vowed that all proceeds from the sale of this book series will help to set up a forever home sanctuary for stray, elderly and abandoned dogs.

Although still working full time at the hospital, she has turned her thoughts to the future, and now holds a Diploma in Dog Training from the Centre of Excellence, and is currently studying towards a Diploma in Canine Communication in order to prepare for a life of working with rescue dogs.

review SPOILER ALERT! 2018-07-20 02:35
Fence issue #1
Fence #1 - C.S. Pacat,Johanna Lindsey
July 1-1

Sixteen-year-old Nicholas Cox is an outsider to the competitive fencing world. Filled with raw talent but lacking proper training, he signs up for a competition that puts him head-to-head with fencing prodigy Seiji Katayama...and on the road to the elite all-boys school Kings Row. A chance at a real team and a place to belong awaits him—if he can make the cut!

Review : I Enjoyed this comic it's about these two fencers Nicholas and Seiji . Seiji is an amazing fencer and beats Nicholas . Nicholas gets into a all boys school seiji is his roommate.

Stormy Persuasion - Johanna Lindsey

Ok, it's been a while, and I'm not overly fond of reading about kids of couples past but... It was better than I expected.

 

My biggest quibble is that Judith considers herself to not be very bold yet her first run-in with the H was when she and her cousin spotted a lamp in the abandoned house and went to investigate. That she made another trip at the beginning of the book, plus the number of other times she did things that, well... Let's just say De Nile isn't just a river in Africa.

 

The H, well, he had reasons for his attitude towards the nobility.

 

Considering this book came out 3 years ago, I wonder when Jack's book comes out. I kinda sorta want to read it but at the same time...
