Josie is the author of seven self-published novels plus short stories: the Solis Invicti series (paranormal romance), the Sovereign trilogy (YA fantasy) and Living Underground (a paranormal romance short story). She is currently working on a range of fantasy and historical fiction projects (both adult and YA), for which she is seeking representation. Ultimately, she hopes to be a hybrid author, both traditionally- and self-published.

After finishing her degree in Literae Humaniores (Classics) at the University of Oxford, Josie wasn't sure what to do with her life. She slogged through a brief stint working for an investment bank in London during the 2008 credit crunch, then converted to law and qualified as a solicitor specialising in intellectual property. She worked at a law firm for five years before moving to a UK-based international publisher in 2016. Whilst she loved law, in the end she didn't love it quite as much as writing, which she now does almost full time.

Josie lives in Oxford with her husband and two cats (Sparky and Gussie), who graciously permit human cohabitation in return for regular feeding and cuddles. The resulting cat fluff makes it difficult for Josie to wear black, which is largely why she gave up being a goth. Although the cats are definitely worth it, she still misses her old wardrobe.

When she's not writing, Josie runs a book blog, The Gin Book Club, which posts monthly video reviews to YouTube. Her YouTube channel also hosts videos about Josie's writing, including writing vlogs, book trailers and readings.
