August 2, 2022: Jo Sisk-Purvis is the newest author to join the Evolved Publishing team.
Jo Sisk-Purvis is an eclectic, enthusiastic, jump-in-feet-first creator, which means “scattered,” but sounds more impressive. Her STEM-rich childhood led to a sensible three degrees in flute performance, with sides of composition, piano, and conducting. Jo has been a storyteller since she first learned that “Quack Quack knows that he’s in luck, for he’s a very special duck.” For many years, she told her stories through music, but in 2010 decided that maternity leave was the perfect time to start writing novels (and adopt a puppy), and has been hooked ever since (on writing. Also puppies).
Jo’s short stories have been published in Cricket Magazine, and she is excited to share her “Trekana” series through Evolved Publishing. She teaches music at a wonderful Friends school that not only allows, but encourages, her quirky detours (they call them “diverse talents”). She music-directs for several theatre companies in central North Carolina, where she lives with her husband, three children, and a menagerie of pets from Captain the Cockatiel to her two sheep, Phineas and Ferb.
Watch for the “Trekana” series of other-world, young adult, sci-fi/fantasy adventures to release starting in December 2022:
- The Watchers [Dec 2022]
- The Knowers [Dec 2023]
- The Trekana [Dec 2024]
Watchers can see and track a bird miles away; Listeners can hear a whisper a village away; and Knowers, extinct for 500 years, possessed telepathic powers straight out of a nightmare.
More coming soon….
