A native North Carolinian, Jo Williams' first career was as a teacher and counselor in the North Carolina public schools, where she received state-level recognition for her pioneering work in peer counseling. In 1999, Jo and her husband, Harry, retired to Hilton Head, SC. As Divine Order would have it, that is when her lifelong dreams began to unfold. Along with author/friend Kathryn Wall (the Bay Tannner mystery series), Jo founded the Island Writers Network and wrote her first novel, The Song My Soul Remembers (Coastal Villages Press, 2003). Endorsed by meta-novelist James Redfield, The Song received recognition from The Midwest Book Review as a "poignant tale of self-discovery." As is all her writing, the novel was inspired by A Course in Miracles, her chosen path of spirituality. Jo's passion in life is sharing the life-transforming principles of the Course through speaking, writing, and teaching. To deepen her understanding of those principles, she pursued a doctorate in Divine Metaphysics, which she completed in 2003. Also an award winning, self-taught artist, Jo's paintings have been sold in galleries in both North and South Carolina. Currently, Jo lives in Tampa, Florida, with her husband and their Havanese pup, Magic. She serves as a chaplain at New Life Unity Church and continues more than a decade of devotion to facilitating classes in A Course in Miracles.
