Hi, I'm Joanna Penn

I'm an award-winning, New York Times and USA Today bestselling author of thrillers, dark fantasy, and memoir as J.F. Penn, and I also write self-help books for authors using the lessons I've learned from over 15 years as a writer.

I'm also a podcaster with two shows — The Creative Penn Podcast for authors, and Books and Travel.

I live in Bath, England, with my husband, Jonathan, and our two British shorthair cats, Cashew and Noisette.

I enjoy traveling for research, reading all kinds of books (here's a list of recommended fiction), and a nice gin and tonic.
