Carson-Barr, Jo

Jo Carson-Barr has been writing for children for about five years. Jo spent a significant number of years working alongside differently abled people. Her dream is that her books will reflect this difference in an inclusive way. Married to Rod she is the mother of three grown-up children and grandmother of six.

Her passion for children’s picture books was ignited in her Playcentre years were she was fortunate to be the centre’s librarian and could go and spend hours in Dorothy Butlers bookshop … she was hooked. Reading endlessly to her own children.
