"JoJo's ability to bring her reader into each and every scene is nothing short of incredible. If you're looking for a book that will inspire, humble, elate, awe and move you, this is it! A perfect example of how loving and trusting in one's self is the formula for living a life in true fulfillment. BRAVO JoJo!"

"It was SO well written, and truthfully I had a hard time putting it down! I would actually sneak it into the bathroom with me at work!"

- R.Mackenzie

"My Missing Peace" is an incredibly well written book. As I read through the chapters, one word kept coming to mind, the word COURAGE. The courage to allow us a glimpse into your life, to overcome the ordeals and setbacks, to keep fighting for you and your son and the courage to keep going through the darkness until you got to the other side. This book will inspire and give anyone who reads it, the tools to take anything life throws at them and say "I have the COURAGE to overcome."


"An inspiring true life story about resilience, determination, perseverance, hope and humanity. A much needed story for us right now."
