Jo writes funny fiction for kids. I Swapped My Brother on the Internet was shortlisted for the Lollies Book Awards 2020, and together with My Parents Cancelled My Birthday and I Stole My Genius Sister’s Brain, it forms a loose series, with the same characters popping up throughout. These three books have all been illustrated by Nathan Reed and translated into several languages.
Jo began her working life as a sub editor on magazines in London and later became a freelance journalist. She started writing for children when her two boys were young and hungry for daft and silly stories to make bedtime more fun.
She lives in Brighton with her family and a small, scruffy dog who leaves hair absolutely everywhere.
