About the Author

Born in Sydney, Australia, Jo Swan felt she was destined to write or illustrate her own novel. She started drawing at a tender age of four and soon discovered that it would become a driving force in her life. With an artistic soul, during her school years, Jo Swan immersed herself in writing, poetry, arts and dance. By the end of high school, she took a detour from her creative self and studied pharmacy.

After graduating from Sydney University, Jo Swan enjoyed her career as a pharmacist. But there was always a yearning in her heart to provide an artistic expression of the human condition. In late 2018, she started writing and sharing her poems online and will be releasing her experimental debut novel, Daughter of Shadows, which uses a collection of poetry and prose to narrate a poignant story of love, loss, trauma, feminity and healing.

Jo Swan enjoys travelling and meeting people from different background. In addition to studying humanity, she enjoys psychology and history.
