Jo Fenton grew up in Hertfordshire. She devoured books from an early age, particularly enjoying adventure books, school stories and fantasy. She wanted to be a scientist from aged six after being given a wonderful book titled “Science Can Be Fun”. At eleven, she discovered Agatha Christie and Georgette Heyer, and now has an eclectic and much loved book collection cluttering her home office.
Jo combines an exciting career in Clinical Research with an equally exciting but very different career as a writer of psychological thrillers.
When not working, she runs (very slowly), and chats to lots of people. She lives in Manchester with her husband, two sons, a Corgi and a tankful of tropical fish. She is an active and enthusiastic member of two writing groups and a reading group.
Her first book, The Brotherhood, was published by Crooked Cat Books in July 2018. The sequel, The Refuge is scheduled for release summer 2019.

Jo’s books are based on a central theme of communities in crisis. The dove represents help that is given to the communities. This can be in the role of a main character gaining the courage to overcome the difficulties, or of a detective solving the crime.
