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.

Es talan meg Patricket is szereti, a baratjat, akivel mar het eve vannak egyutt. Am egy napon Lou szepen berendezett vilagaban minden a feje tetejere all: a kavezo varatlanul bezar, es hogy tovabbra is tamogatni tudja a csaladjat, Lou elvallalja egy ferfi gondozasat, aki sulyos balesete utan mogorvan tolti a napjait. Will Traynor gyuloli az eletet. Hogy is ne gyulolne, amikor egyetlen nap alatt mindent elveszitett? A meno allasa Londonban, az alomszep baratnoje, a baratai, az egzotikus nyaralasok - mindez mar a multe. A jelen pedig nem is lehetne rosszabb: nem eleg, hogy onallosagatol es meltosagatol megfosztva vissza kellett ternie a szulovarosaba, most meg egy uj gondozot is felvettek melle, anelkul, hogy kikertek volna a velemenyet.

What Will doesn't know is that Lou is about to burst into his world in a riot of colour. And neither of them knows they're going to change the other for all time.After You Lou Clark has lots of questions. Like how it is she's ended up working in an airport bar, spending every shift watching other people jet off to new places. Or why the flat she's owned for a year still doesn't feel like home. Whether her close-knit family can forgive her for what she did eighteen months ago. And will she ever get over the love of her life. What Lou does know for certain is that something has to change. Then, one night, it does. But does the stranger on her doorstep hold the answers Lou is searching for - or just more questions? Close the door and life continues: simple, ordered, safe.
