Jo Riccioni studied English at Leeds University in the UK and graduated with a Masters in Medieval Literature. During this time she became obsessed with Icelandic saga, and the Arthurian and Robin Hood legends, often re-imagining these stories with women cast in the hero’s role.
However, her first novel, The Italians at Cleat’s Corner Store, was historical fiction set in post-war England and was inspired by a family history that kept nagging her to be told. It was published in Australia and the UK, where it won the International Rubery Award for Fiction and was longlisted for the New Angle Prize. Jo finally returned to her love of medieval-inspired worlds with her new feminist fantasy series, The Branded Season. The first book, The Branded, released in October 2022 and its conclusion, The Rising, will be released in 2023.
Jo continues to write short fiction. Her stories have been published in Best Australian Stories 2010 and 2011, and in anthologies in Australia and overseas. She has won short story awards in the UK, the US and Australia.
