Hi, I’m Jo

A writer, a slow reader, and a regular cinemagoer.

I am the author of two poetry collections, Primary Poems and its sequel Secondary Poems. Some of my work has also been published by Sunday Mornings at the River, Beyond the Veil Press, and Querencia Press. I am working on a third poetry collection, a non-fiction book and a memoir.
