Jo Goodman

Jo Goodman

Jo Goodman is the author of thirty plus historical romances, six short stories for various anthologies, and, in a moment of inspired madness, one contemporary romance.  The contemporary — No Place Like Home — was well received, being named one of the top ten romances by The Library Journal in 2011.  Inspired madness, as it turns out, is not necessarily a bad thing.

It is Jo’s other career that has informed her writing.  When readers learn that she has been working with children and families all her adult life, and that she is a licensed professional counselor, their response is something along the lines of ‘of course.’  It just makes sense to them that her ability to develop rich, three-dimensional characters and nuanced relationships has its roots in her counseling.  In addition, her work as a listener means she has a sense for how people talk, and this shows up in the sometimes witty, sometimes poignant, and always thoughtful dialogue.  Her characters are the kind of people her readers say they want to know and the kind of characters they miss when they finish the book.

Once upon a time, Jo imagined she would be a marine biologist.  Violent seasickness squashed that, plus, biology really wasn’t her best subject.  She fell into working with kids the same way she fell into writing.  She tried it on for size and discovered it was a good fit.  She hasn’t looked back, well, except when she’s writing a bio.  The very nature of that kinda demands looking back.

Jo’s had people say some very nice things about her writing.

  • “One of the premier Western romance writers. Goodman delivers a solid plot with engaging characters.” — RT Book Reviews
  • “A tender, engaging romance and a dash of risk in a totally compelling read…Gritty, realistic, and laced with humor.” — Library Journal (starred review)
  • “Exquisitely written. Rich in detail, the characters are passionately drawn…An excellent read.” —The Oakland Press
  • “For the pure joy of reading a romance, this book comes close to being some kind of perfection.” — Dear Author
  • “Fans of historical and western romance will appreciate Goodman’s witty dialogue, first-rate narrative prose and clever plotting.” — Publisher’s Weekly (starred review)
  • 2018 Library Journal – one of the top romances of the year for A Touch of Flame

Many of Jo’s earlier out-of-print historicals have been reconfigured as e-books, which has introduced her writing to a new audience and kept her connected to long-time readers.

Jo is a USA Bestselling author, a winner of RT’s Career Achievement Award, and has a bunch of competitive swimming medals.  Wait, that last isn’t important, but it helps explain the whole short-lived marine biology career path.
