My life has been shaped by books and travel — maybe yours has, too.
I’m Jo Frances Penn. I write thrillers and dark fantasy stories under J.F.Penn and non-fiction for writers under Joanna Penn.
I’m a podcaster, audiobook narrator, and creative entrepreneur — but most of all, I’m a traveller. I hope you’ll join me on a journey both inside and out.

The ocean represents the themes of Books & Travel. Together, we will explore …
The light turquoise shallows where you’re safe and can bask in the sun with a cocktail in hand, exploring the simple joys of a new place. I’ll be sharing articles about places I’ve travelled, podcast interviews with authors around the places that inspire their writing, as well as tips on food and drink.
The dark midnight depths where you feel an edge of challenge and a pull to the deep. I’ll be talking and writing about the darker side of travel, as well as the inner journey — perhaps the most important exploration of all.
