Jojo Moyes - Author

About the Author

Jojo Moyes was our Guest Editor in March 2014 - click here - to see the books that inspired her writing.

Jojo Moyes is a novelist and a journalist. She worked at the Independent for ten years before leaving to write full time. Her previous novels have all been critically acclaimed and include Me Before You, The Girl You Left Behind, The Ship of Brides, Foreign Fruit, and The Last Letter from Your Lover. She lives in Essex with her husband and their three children.

Me Before You was 2012’s greatest love story – it was Spring 2012’s most popular Richard & Judy pick that went on to be nominated for book of the year at the Galaxy Book Awards. Excitingly, it has since been optioned by MGM and Jojo has been writing the script this summer.

Jojo has spent much of 2013 touring the US and this summer Me Before You went straight in on The New York Times bestseller Top Ten chart. In the UK, appearances this year so far include World Book Night, Hay Literary Festival, The Bookseller Industry Awards and the Orange Women’s Prize.

Her latest novel The One Plus One is in the same vein of Me Before You – an unconventional love story with a dilemma at its heart. It has a cast of wonderful characters and show that family comes in all forms and that through hard work and optimism, your happy ending might come true after all.

Pure pleasure' SUNDAY MIRROR 'Loved every page and didn't want it to end. Transports you to a different place and time' 5***** READER REVIEW _____________ She always knew she could change the world. But nobody ever changed the world alone . . . In 1930s England, Alice is stifled, bored, and misunderstood. So when she meets wealthy and handsome American, Bennett Van Cleve, she is quickly swept off her feet. Marrying him and moving to America seems like a great adventure - but life as a newlywed in stuffy Baileyville, Kentucky, is not at all what she hoped for. Until, that is, she responds to a call for volunteers to start a travelling library, surprising herself by saying yes, before her husband can say no . . . Led by feisty and rebellious Margery O'Hare, this unlikely group of women travel far and wide on their mission to bring books and reading to those that need it, and Alice finally discovers the freedom, friendship, and independence she's been looking for. But not everyone approves of what they are doing, and when the town turns against them, will their belief in each other and their work be enough? The Giver of Stars is a mesmerising tale of female friendship, romance, and the wonder of books and reading, based on a remarkable true story. ______________ 'An entertaining, immersive and moving read' THE SUNDAY TIMES 'I loved it and didn't want it to end!'
