STILL WRITING AFTER ALL THESE YEARS:
HOW I BECAME AN OVERNIGHT SUCCESS IN
THIRTY YEARS

It’s possible to ride the highs and lows of publishing…and survive with a long and book-filled career. Come with your questions for a frank discussion of how to grab onto the highs and learn to avoid the lows of becoming a veteran in the publishing world.

Jo Ann Brown Ferguson wrote her first novel in high school, and it resides in the depths of her file cabinet. After serving as an US Army quartermaster officer, she had her first book published in 1988. She has sold over 100 titles and has become a best-selling and award-winning author. Romantic Times called her “a truly talented author.” She’s written romance, mystery, movie novelizations and YA as well as been a ghostwriter. Now she writes Amish romances for Harlequin Love Inspired and Annie’s Fiction as Jo Ann Brown. Her books have been translated into a dozen languages and are sold on every continent except Antarctica.
