Jo Beverley Memorial

May 24, 2016

The world of historical fiction lost one of its best contributors yesterday.


Jo Beverley’s books covered the Medieval, Georgian, and Regency periods in scope and did them all with depth, humor, and a sense of time suspended. 


Her characters became three-dimensional friends with whom readers fell in love and wanted to meet again… which we were able to do in each of her series titles. Her stories never disappointed.


Jo was more than an author to be admired for her words on the page.  She was a gracious, down-to-earth woman of humor and encouragement. She made everyone she met feel comfortable and appreciated. She listened to those she was with and shared her experiences freely.


It has been several years since I was able to talk to her personally, and I doubt she would remember me specifically, but I will miss her and her talent nonetheless.


Rest in Peace, Jo
