Author bio:

Joanne Phillips lives in Cheshire, England with her daughter and her cat, Beau. She writes romantic comedies, literary fiction, and murder mysteries. An award-winning author, she has a Masters in Creative Writing and her books regularly appear on category bestseller lists.

Joanne has always loved making up stories and has a very active imagination! Before writing her first book, Joanne was a hairdresser, an air hostess and a librarian - and not very good at sticking to one career. Now she divides her time between writing and finding creative ways to avoid housework. She’s a fan of dark chocolate and good coffee, and is addicted to Netflix.
