About Jo

Jo Horne began her writing career as part of her business and life-experience in the field of eldercare. After publishing several how-to books for caregivers, she decided to follow her passion: writing historical fiction. A detour into the world of romance and inspirational genre fiction (writing as Anna Schmidt) gave her the tools she needed to tell a good story. Another brief detour into the world of screenwriting revealed her unique style. A lifelong fan of theater and film, Jo ‘sees’ and ‘directs’ her characters as she writes, as if moving them around on a set or stage. Having cut her educational chops on a degree in history and another in theater, Jo finds researching her stories a huge part of the joy of writing. Raised in the mountains of southwestern Virginia, these days Jo splits her time between her adopted states of Wisconsin and Florida.

But will that be enough to overcome a financial Depression in its third year with no sign of abating or the brutally cold wilderness that is Yellowstone in winter – or their search for the meaning of ‘family’?
