Biography

Jo Beverley is one the few authors writing English-set historical romance who is English. She was born and raised in England, and has a degree in English history from Keele University in Staffordshire. She and her husband emigrated to Canada in 1975 where they raised their two children. In 2009, the couple returned to England.

Though Jo started to write as a young child, it was only in the '80s 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.

Now, she is the author of over thirty romance novels and many novellas, which have garnered several RITAs from the Romance Writers of America, as well as several awards from Romantic Times, including two Career Achievement awards. She is a member of the RWA Honor Roll, and the RWA Hall of Fame.

Good To Know

Some fascinating outtakes from our interview with Jo Beverley:

"I'm English, born, raised, and educated, which has to contribute to the way I write my books."

"My profession -- once upon a time in another world -- was careers guidance, which involved visiting many different workplaces and learning about the jobs done there. This is a great education in the variety and complexity of life."

"I taught women-centered childbirth classes for 5 years, and that comes out in any childbirth scenes in my books.

"I'm a craft-dabbler, and I've tried most of them, including Tenerife lace, tatting, leatherwork, and stained glass, but I've never stuck with any. However, I once was a very good painter and I've recently decluttered all my craft materials to concentrate on drawing and painting as my artistic therapy for a demented author."

"I grew up in Morecambe, Lancashire, which is a 19th-century seaside town, but that's very close to Heysham, an ancient coastal village. They say the pre-Conquest church there is the oldest one in England still in use and there are stone-age tombs as well. We used to play on an Anglo-Saxon hogs-back stone near the church. I'm sure this easy contact with such ancient things tuned my mind to the past. I set my second book, The Stanforth Secrets, in Heysham, and it will be reissued in 2010." "My indulgences are really good cheese, bread, wine, coffee, and dark, dark chocolate (90% Lindt."

    I very much appreciate adding this book to my collection, having avidly read the previous books edited by George R R martin.


    The marrying Maid, Jo Beverley another story of fairy, similar to Tam Lin where a human is trapped in fairy and has to create an impossible situation to find relief from the magic and spells of fairy, a young girl is taken from her home by a stranger that more frightens her then intrigues her, she is well met by the lady and lord of the fairies’ and is the object of their p...moreI very much appreciate adding this book to my collection, having avidly read the previous books edited by George R R martin.


    The marrying Maid, Jo Beverley another story of fairy, similar to Tam Lin where a human is trapped in fairy and has to create an impossible situation to find relief from the magic and spells of fairy, a young girl is taken from her home by a stranger that more frightens her then intrigues her, she is well met by the lady and lord of the fairies’ and is the object of their personal completion, it is a great story.


    Blue Boots, Robin Hobb, I have read other stories by this author but found this one to be very appealing, maybe the reference to blue boots just has an emotional tug on my heart, or just the fact that a minstrel can find true love, and despite rumor and intrigue find nobility in a young orphan girl. In the end a very moving story.




    You, and you alone, Jacqueline Carey, i am amazed by this story, lost in its world and fiction. Wow, what a story to draw you into this world created by this otherwise unknown author to me. I have found transcendent her love and devotion that she gives her main character, at first I was surprised it was a male character, but to see a Greek novelty in the story, and a love story that transcends gender and station in a world of kings and queens. Told at the moment of his death as he remembers his one and only love, and how they came apart and rejoined over periods of time, and place is truly inspiring.



    Under/Above the water, Tanith Lee, an odd story, with and ever ending loop similar to an infinity mark that rolls back over itself. Creating a fluid but confusing sequence of events that are drawn over themselves. the characters are opposites of each other, in one sequence named at the beginning and end of the alphabit, to be switched in placement. It results in a number of confusions about which character is which in the story.



    Demon Lover Cecelia Holland,begins very erotically similar in nature to a Peirs anthony Relationship book, with guilty pleasures making the character upset. But retells from the beginning how the character found herself faced with a lusty demon. Now its up to her and her friend to find a solution, and free themselves from the green tower.

    Good collection

    I got this book for the short by Jacqueline Carey. Her short was very good and I enjoyed reading it. The other stories were okay, but none of them made me want to go out and buy the other author's books
