Jojo Moyes has been writing for years, first as a news journalist, then as a novelist. Her book Me Before You became a huge international bestseller and people started calling her an overnight sensation.
Of course she had already written lots of books and written a zillion words for newspapers…
Me Before You is being made into a movie and Jojo is part of the screenwriting team…rather unusual for Hollywood to keep the original author on board but the people behind the film think her voice is absolutely necessary for the film. Casting has not yet been announced. Stay tuned.
Jojo’s new book is One Plus One featuring another odd cast of characters and a huge, sloppy dog. It’s a road trip filled with unlikely friendships and challenges.
Jojo lives on a farm in Essex with her journalist husband and three kids and various animals.
