About Jo McNally

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 upstate New York 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 family and 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 Jill Marsal of Marsal Lyon Literary Agency. I’m a member of Romance Writers of America. I am the winner of the 2018 GDRWA Booksellers’ Best Award for Best First Book (She’s Far From Hollywood) and the 2020 Readers Choice Award Grand Prize for It Started at Christmas…

Just like in my stories, life isn’t always easy or without complications, but Himself (it’s an Irish thing) and I laugh every day and we make the effort to keep things sexy and fun and rewarding in this crazy partnership otherwise known as marriage.
