Jo Beverley 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, where they now live. They have two sons.
Though she started to write as a young child, it was only in the eighties that she began to think that it was something ordinary people can do, and after a talk at a local library, she settled to seriously writing her first historical romance. As we enter a new millennium, she is the author of twenty romance novels.
