Any questions for Jo?


  1. Well now, I just answered one of my questions by googling Kuvasz breed. I was right, it's a Hungarian breed. I lived in Budapest for 3 years and loved it. Learning to speak Hungarian though, now that was tough but it was also why I put 2 & 2 together on the breed name. It's nice to know what Major looks like. And no I don't need a picture of Basil or Zeke - I like my imagination to work on those two - phew!

    I'm hoping my other questions are going to be answered in more books. I'd like to know what happened after Jo became Djinn, the story of Stavros & Benny. What happened to Reggie? What lead to the set up of the network? And how come no-one taught her all those Djinn things she found out in WIOH she didn't know?

    Please tell me there's another book coming....soon....pretty please with sugar on?

    1. Don't worry, Fran. I have no pics of any of the rest of the characters except what's in my head. (Okay, I actually do have a picture of the person I used as Zeke's model, but I won't post it.) I want readers to create their own mental pics of the characters. That's what I like to do as a reader. I'm glad you have an idea of what Major looks like now. He's actually based off a dog my sister had when I was small and the closest breed I find was the Kuvasz, (Cargo was a mutt.)

      I have the story of Benny and Jo's meeting already written - it was snipped out of an earlier draft. I also have more details on Jo's time with Stavros. The story with Reggie will be explained later, as will the answer of why she was so ignorant of genie stuff.

      Is 6 months soon enough? In Deep Wish (book 2) is on the schedule for February.

  2. Yo, Jo! You rock, babe. Just sayin'...

    I know what's coming so I really don't have any questions, except...Zeke. Yeah. You have this love/hate thing going with him. I want to know...was he worth it? ;) *ducks and runs*

    1. Jo: Thanks, Silver!

      Yeah, about Zeke. I hate to admit it, but yeah, looking back? He was so worth it.
