Jo Walpole at Gravetapping
To coincide with the release of the second book in the Maggie O'Bannen series, fellow writer and western enthusiast Ben Boulden asked me a few questions for his Gravetapping blog.
Interview: Jo Walpole
Jo Walpole published her first novel in 2005—a well-received Western romance she would “prefer to keep…in the past”—and since then Jo has written another eight novels and a short story collection. Her recent work has been in the Western genre, both traditional—“standard [and] non-offensive”—written as by Terry James, and a more violent and graphic variety with her tough-as-nails Maggie O’Bannen series, written as by Joe Slade.
Jo’s work has been well-received by critics and readers alike. The first Maggie O’Bannen novel, Days of Evil, was called “absorbing” with “smooth writing, real characters, and a great story” by novelist Paul Bishop. Her writing has also been hailed as “fun”, “fast moving, hard hitting”, and “unputdownable”.
Jo was kind enough to take a break from her writing and answer a few questions. The questions are italicized, and as always, the answers are so much more important.
What’s your latest novel?
It’s called Wanted - Deadand is the second in the Maggie O’Bannen series, which I write as Joe Slade for Piccadilly...You can find out what I had to say here.
