Hey there!

I'm Jo (she/her), a twenty-something Canadian that writes romance and fantasy novels. I'm a proud Wattpad Star, coffee addict, and a terrible dancer. You can usually find me listening to Taylor Swift and having a breakdown over a Sarah J Maas novel.

(You can also find my steamier adult stories under @joafterdark)
