Jo Buer


Jo Buer is a gothic suspense and paranormal mystery author living in New Zealand. She is a sucker for the supernatural, time travel, and all things woo-woo. From an early age, she came to realise that sometimes truth is stranger than fiction.
She lives in an ordinary house in an ordinary town with her husband and feline familiars, Atlas, Gaia, Zeus, and Hades. When not doting on her cats, devouring self-help books or gorging on chocolate, she writes slightly dark, sometimes scary, often ghostly stories with a smattering of romance.
Jo is also the host of the Alchemy for Authors podcast - a podcast to transform and supercharge your writing life.
