Jo Ho

Author Jo Hoabout this book: I've been writing screenplays and television scripts for over a decade now and have worked with some of the most acclaimed producers in the world, but most of you won't have heard of me - even though I did create a kick-ass action fantasy television show for BBC Children's called SPIRIT WARRIORS - as my projects have been either too risky or expensive to make, or stuck in development hell, or a million other reasons.

So, I decided to self-publish, both my screenplays and new fiction material.

This story is an adaption of a short film screenplay that I originally wanted to make as a film, however, I just could not find the funding for it, try as I might. After being turned down by all the usual suspects, I decided to adapt this into a novella.

I've moved to many new towns and homes, and though they were usually accompanied with a sense of great excitement, I have also felt the isolation and loneliness that can occur through starting a life in a new place. This story is for those who feel lost and to let them know — you are not alone.

I'd love to stay connected to you and hope you'll sign up to my mailing list. I will write to you when I have something to exciting to say, or when I'll be releasing new material or doing a giveaway. I am also currently looking to develop my street team so if you want to be a part of that and receive free advanced copies of my books in return for reviews on the book seller's site, Goodreads etc and social shares, then please let me know at

I'm nice I promise, so don't be shy! I love communicating with my fans and promise to get back to each and every one of you. 
— Jo
