VJ Books Presents Author Jojo Moyes!
Jojo Moyes was born in 1969, in Maidstone, England, and grew up in London. She attended Royal Holloway, University of London, where she got her first degree, and then City University where she studied Newspaper Journalism as a postgraduate.
Moyes is now a full-time novelist, but her previous professional adventures have included typing braille bank statements for NatWest, writing brochures, working as a minicab controller, and ten years as a journalist, both in Hong Kong and England.
Moyes wrote four novels while juggling a newborn, her job as a journalist, and the pregnancy of her second child. The first three faced rejection, but the fourth, Sheltering Rain was published in 2002, and since then she has published over a dozen more novels. Me Before You (2012) was nominated for the UK Galaxy Book Awards Book of the Year, and has sold over 3 million copies. Moyes also wrote the screenplay for the film adaptation, which was released in 2016. In addition, she has been awarded the Romantic Novelist's Award not once, but twice.
Moyes currently lives Essex, England with her husband, Charles, and their three children.
