BIOGRAPHY Jo Ann Glim was born in Chicago to a military family and raised in Anacortes, Washington in the far reaches of the Pacific Northwest. It was an ideal place to raise a precocious child, especially one that's inquisitive and daring. Tragically, her mother passed away from a stroke when Glim was fourteen. This was the beginning of a life-path plotted with many dark events. In her own words, "instead of consuming me, they made me stronger, and I'm here to tell you, darkness can be replaced with light."
Glim's three-pronged career of broadcast and print media, freelance writing, and business management formed her into the award-winning indie author she is today. Her books, the award-winning "Begotten With Love," and her newest release "Trapped Within," are both non-fiction, life-stories filled with challenges, hope, and humor.
She now lives in Florida with her husband and their Scottie, Lucy.
