THIS WEEK: Jo Lambert reveals how landscape shapes her writing…
Born and raised in rural Wiltshire, Jo Lambert grew up with a love of books and a vivid imagination. As a child she enjoyed creating her own adventure stories similar to Enid Blyton’s Famous Five. Writing always stayed with her, but college, work and eventually marriage found it was kept very much in the background. However in 2009 she finally had her first novel – When Tomorrow Comes – published. Three other connected books – Love Lies and Promises, The Ghost of You and Me and Between Today and Yesterday followed. They became collectively known as the Little Court Series. In 2013 she decided to give up full time work to concentrate fully on her writing. Since then she has added a final book The Other Side of Morning, to her Little Court Series. This was followed by two linked novels set in South Devon – Summer Moved On and Watercolours in the Rain – published in 2015 and 2016. Her new work in progress is set in North Cornwall and will be published at the end of 2017.

Jo is married and lives in a village on the eastern edge of Bath with her husband, one small grey feline called Mollie and a green MGB GT. She loves travel, red wine, rock music and has a passion for dark chocolate…
