Josie Laird is a self-sufficiency enthusiast who lives on an acreage just outside Auckland, New Zealand. She has rainwater tanks, solar panels and a hybrid car.

When she is not writing or reading, Josie looks after her animals - Vago the cat (named after a YA character), chickens, cows and bees. She also has a large vegetable garden and orchard. She enjoys making jams and pickles, but ends up giving most of them away.

Josie has always been a reader, but it is only recently that she returned to writing. She has three adult sons and a bewildered husband, who have all accepted her devotion to books.
