Jo McNally – Romance Writer

On DockI write contemporary romances about the forever power of love. My debut romance novel “She’s Far From Hollywood” will be published by Harlequin Superromance in February 2017, telling the story of Bree and Cole – a Hollywood diva hiding from a stalker, and a Carolina farmer hiding from his battle-born nightmares.

Coming next from Harlequin Superromance will be “The Plans We Make” (working title). It’s the story of a woman who can’t plan for everything no matter how hard she tries, and a man who wants no part of her plans at all.

I write the same kind of romances I like to read – stories about characters facing real-life challenges with real-life consequences. The stories are emotional, but still have humor, and love always finds a way to pull the characters through together.

I live in coastal North Carolina with 100 pounds of dog and 200 pounds of husband – my slice of the bed is very small. When I’m not writing or reading romance novels (or clinging to the edge of the bed…), I can often be found on the back porch sipping wine with friends while listening to an eclectic playlist. If the weather is absolutely perfect, I might join my husband on the golf course, where I always feel far more competitive than my actual skill-level would suggest.

I am represented by Veronica Park of Corvisiero Literary Agency. I am a member of Romance Writers of America and Heart of Carolina Romance Writers.
