Jo Cotterill

Jo Cotterill has been many things: an actor, a musician, a teacher and a customer service adviser for the gas board. However, writing is her absolute most favourite career so far and she hopes to be doing it for a very long time to come. Her first book was published in 1994 and since then she has written the successful ‘Sweet Hearts’ series for Random House as well as a number of books and plays for the specialist publisher Barrington Stoke.
