I am an Indie author who is passionate about story-telling. I love every part of a book's journey from conception to publication. Writing romance stories brings me the greatest joy and there's no other career I'd rather pursue. I am very aware of how blessed I am to be able to do what I love for a living. I owe it all to my readers for supporting my work, so thank you to every person who has read one of my books.
I live in New Zealand with my husband, two sons and our dogs, Zippy and Moses. They all keep me pretty busy and very entertained. When I'm not hanging out with them, I'm in my office writing my little heart out.
My best friend was the first person to tell me to write a book—she's amazing.
I've spent chunks of my life living in different countries—Jordan, Cyprus, Pakistan and China.
I don't drink tea, coffee or alcohol. It's not from a lack of trying, I just really don't like the taste.
One of my favorite things to do is watch movies. I love them.
I also love music and can't go one day without it. My taste is VERY eclectic.
I'm a very un-sporty person, but have discovered that doing weights at the gym is something I can actually do. I try to get there 4 times a week and really love it now.
I didn't enjoy reading until I was about 12 years old, when I discovered the Sweet Valley High collection.
When I first started writing I overused the word 'just', I used smiley faces instead of full stops in emails, and I used way too many exclamation marks!!!!!!!!!
My husband and I spent 9 months traveling around the USA and Canada in a Chevy G-20. Best year of my life.
I think love is a super power.
I have an amazing team...
I'm blessed enough to work with some amazing people. I am eternally grateful to:
My agent - Catherine (High Spot Literary)
My editor - Beth (By the Book Editing)
My cover designer - Emily (EMW Designs)
My PA - Rachael (best assistant in the world!)
My proof-reader - Kristin
My Advanced Reader Team: If you'd like the opportunity to join this team, all you have to do is review one Jordan Ford novel on either Amazon or Goodreads, and email the review link to: firstname.lastname@example.org. You'll then be sent an invite to join the team, where you will receive advanced copies of my books so you can review them when they release.
I have amazing readers...
One of my favorite aspects of this job is interacting with my readers. So, I set up a readers group on Facebook for all my pen-names. This is a place where we talk about books, movies and music we love, plus I post weekly teasers and giveaways, and ask my readers for advice with upcoming projects.

A way to give back...
I am passionate about telling stories of healthy love. Unfortunately, there are some very distorted messages of what love is out in the world today and through my books, I want to share the message of what real, good, healthy love should look like.
A way for me to show this in action is by sharing my profits with an organization that lives love on a daily basis. Their mission is to eradicate child trafficking and slavery from the world. They are truly an awesome organization and I thank you for helping me support them.
Because of your purchase, I am able to donate over $3000 annually to Love146, making a cumulative total of over $11000 donated since I first started giving to Love146.
