Jo Rees grew up in Chelmsford before getting an English and Drama degree at Goldsmiths' College. After several bizarre jobs, including running her own sandwich delivery business and writing promotions for the back of Sugar Puffs boxes, 'It Could Be You', was published in 1997 under her maiden name, Josie Lloyd, and enabled her to meet fellow novelist, Emlyn Rees. Together they wrote 'Come Together' which became a number one "Sunday Times" bestseller and was translated into 26 languages. They went on to co-write six more successful novels, and along the way got married and had three kids. In 2007 Jo went solo and wrote 'Platinum', followed by 'Forbidden Pleasures'.
'A Twist of Fate is an epic page-turner. It takes you to the height of opulence and the depths of despair, and shows that growing into a life of privilege doesn't by any means guarantee happiness. Joanna Rees combines some very hard subject matters with wonderful love stories, spectacular locations and an incredible cast of characters' Novelicious.com
