Jo Wilde considers herself a proud Midlander (despite being told by a university friend that 'the Midlands' doesn't exist) and loves living in her Derbyshire village with her two children, two stepchildren, two hamsters, two dogs and - thankfully - one husband. To be fair, with the children now largely grown up, they only live with her intermittently when their own money and their supply of booze runs out. Upon retirement, Jo and her husband plan to take off in a mobile home (or, in her mind, a mobile writing office) to see the world. In the meantime, Jo's very happy with imaginary worlds and has now published a range of fiction, including historical novels as Joanna Courtney and contemporary fiction as Anna Stuart.
If you like emotionally intelligent books with a dash of reality, don't miss Just the Two of Us. It hooked me from the start A fabulous, heartwarming story . . . Jo Wilde has cleverly and humorously described the vagaries of being with a long-standing partner in lockdown So relatable, so emotional, so good
