Tucson Festival of Books

Jo Segura (she/her)



Sean Hoyt

Sponsored by Friend of the Festival

Jo Segura lives in the Pacific Northwest with her husband and doggo, who vies for her attention with his sweet puppy dog eyes whenever she's trying to write (her dog, that is... though sometimes her husband, too). Her stories feature strong, passionate heroines and draw upon aspects of her life, such as her love of good food, her Mexican heritage and her fascination with archaeology. When she's not writing you can find her practicing law, shaking up a mean cocktail or sitting out on the patio doing Buzzfeed quizzes (though she doesn't care what the chicken nugget quiz said—her favorite fruit is not banana). Her new book is "Raiders of the Lost Heart."

It's Academic
From grade school to graduate school, it's always fun to explore the lives of educators, researchers, and explorers who work there. Today, three romance authors will discuss how they applied their own backgrounds to the academic lives of their characters. They will explore why education and research make great settings for romance.
