Literary Agent, Freelance Writer, Speaker

Jo is a “retired” librarian, analyst, and project manager, enjoying the freedom to express her life’s purpose – to share joy and to be of service to others – as a literary agent and through book and content writing, motivational and inspirational public speaking, Reiki, and other service to people and animals on their life journeys. She brings a unique combination of love for the written and spoken emanations from the heart and soul, the analytical care of ensuring the author’s/sponsor’s voice remains true while massaging the words into a form more amenable to social media or publishing, and the project manager’s attention to timelines and deliverables. Jo also provides assistance and guidance to other writers, helping them from the initial book concept stage through self-publication, and often into marketing, personal branding assistance, and website development and maintenance. Please see other pages on this site for more information on each of her interests.
