About the author

Jo with her friends Anne Gracie and Mary Jo Putney.

Jo Beverley was one the few authors writing English-set historical romance who was English. She was born and raised in England, and had a degree in English history from Keele University in Staffordshire. She and her husband emigrated to Canada, but returned to England, where she stayed until she started her next big adventure on May 23, 2016. She is survived by her husband, two sons, and granddaughter.

Though Jo started to write as a young child, it was only in the eighties that she began to think that it was something ordinary people could do, and after a talk at a local library, she settled to seriously writing her first historical romance.

She wrote forty-one romance novels and many novellas—see Jo Beverley's booklist—which have brought her many awards, including five RITA awards from the Romance Writers of America and awards from Romantic Times, including two Career Achievement awards. She was a member of the RWA Honor Roll, and the RWA Hall of Fame.
