Author Sarah Jio / Seattle, Washington

sarah jio favorites page

My favorite fiction books are all written by the same author – Sarah Jio.  The setting of her books include my favorite era of 1930s/40s/50s and her dual story lines often touch the late 1990s through present day.  The plot of each book typically has a connection to her beloved Pacific Northwest and there is mystery, suspense, and romance all tied into these fictional novels.  They are an easy read and engaging making it hard for me to put them down once I start reading.  The Look of Love will be released in November of 2014 however Jio’s other six novels are available now.  Read more.

This three year old is my very own pint size shutterbug. He most certainly gives a different perspective on picture taking; and often times it’s a blurry one! 

I love viewing the world through his eyes.  Follow @masography.
