Jo McCready grew up on the rain soaked streets of small town Scotland before moving to the sunnier climes of Auckland, New Zealand in 2010. She has a background in psychology and a lifetime love of mystery and murder. She is a founding member of the Auckland Crime Writers group and attends any writing events and festivals she can get her hands on.
Jo writes with the support of her husband and daughter, and the hindrance of a neurotic little dog. All of whom, she loves dearly.
She has written all her life, from academic papers to short stories and novels. Right from the beginning, Jo felt a strong pull back to the land of her birth. And so, RJ Rox was born. A Scot in a new land is sadly where the similarities end between Jo and her main character. Although, thinking about it, that’s actually a good thing.
