The author of 17 novels, Jo-Ann Power capitalizes on her love of words by combining her 9-5 life as a professional public relations consultant with her love of fiction.

Writing mystery, romance and mainstream novels, she has won awards and praise from reviewers and readers. Her ability to "cleverly weave politics, murder and romance, creating intense, breath-catching suspense" is a hallmark of her works, says Publisher's Weekly. Earning her a place in the Mystery Guild and Doubleday Book Club, her award-winning, "power-ful" style has been ranked with Daphne DuMaurier's and Phyllis Whitney's. Her characters "make readers believe in the power of love" (Old Book Barn Gazette) and her suspenseful plots "keep readers up till the wee hours of dawn." (Gothic Journal)

Jo-Ann and Steve, who will soon celebrate their 37th anniversary, have three talented adult children. Moving from Washington, D.C. to Texas in 1996, Jo-Ann and Steve live in the beautiful Hill Country just north of San Antonio--which, until a few weeks ago, was well within the 23rd Congressional District that she writes about in her Me & Mr. Jones mystery series!
