About Me

JJA Harwood is an author, editor and blogger. She grew up in Norfolk, read History at the University of Warwick and eventually found her way to London, which is still something of a shock for somebody used to so many fields. When not writing, she can be found learning languages, cooking with more enthusiasm than skill, wandering off into clearly haunted houses and making friends with stray cats. Her first novel, THE SHADOW IN THE GLASS, was released in March 2021 and debuted onto the Sunday Times bestseller list.

She has been blogging for nearly eight years at Jo Writes Stuff, writing about anything that takes her fancy. Her most popular series, Strong Female Characters and Book Recipes, can be found here.
