Welcome to the home page of romance writer Jo Fereday.
Home is, after all, where the heart is...
I write light, sweet romantic fiction, usually with humour, and am working towards publication.
My heroines are from all walks of life, but independent, 21st century women making their way in the world, all over the world, using their wit, intelligence and heart to survive and thrive.
The men that come into their lives offer them something more. More excitement, more understanding or more trouble. Usually all three!
Join them as they take the rocky and exciting journey towards love.
These are romances for the 21st century.
I had the pleasure of interviewing a senior lecturer from the University of Auckland's School of the Environment. He was very helpful - apparently freshwater ecologists aren't often fictionalised!

Registration is open for RWNZ's 2013 conference in Wellington, A Capital Affair. But I can't decide between all the great workshops!
The Sweetest Gig of All is currently with a major publisher - only my second ever submission!

I started 5 new stories in 2012, along with others to be edited, so my summer holiday is going to be finishing those novels ready for editing in 2013!
I've entered The Sweetest Gig of All into Harlequin's So You Think You Can Write competition. You can vote for it every 24 hours until October 11!

I'm now on the Executive of RWNZ. Looking forward to serving this amazing group of writers.
