Jo Jackson is a freelance writer and blogger. She has had a varied career that includes 20 years in early years education, running a sales office, HR, and even worked as a barber when she finished her college education.
Jo has suffered from various mental health issues for the vast majority of her life and talks openly about the illness in order to give advice to others and reduce the stigma. She also shares her experiences of menopause, caesareans, a hysterectomy and asthma.
In addition to running the family home, she has written many articles for books, magazines and websites. She has also created and continues to maintain several social media accounts for musicians and her own web presence.
For the past few years, she has produced a blog Tea and Cake for the Soul where she focuses on the nicer things in life such as travel, music, books and recipes. She gives useful tips for the home, the environment and how to cope with health matters such as menopause and mental health.
Jo’s long term goals are to write and travel more (particularly in the USA), and to finish writing her memoirs of growing up on a diet of music.

“People look for retreats for themselves, in the country, by the coast, or in the hills . . . There is nowhere that a person can find a more peaceful and trouble-free retreat than in his own mind. . . . So constantly give yourself this retreat, and renew yourself.”
