Josephine Cox is an English author of family saga, historical fiction and women’s fiction novels. She has also written paranormal romance as Jane Brindle (her mother’s name). Josephine’s novels are set in the North Country – the same area of England she grew up in. Born in a cotton mill house in Blackburn, Lancashire in a family of ten children, Josephine was married at age 16. When her two sons went to school, she went to college and was accepted into the University of Cambridge, but was unable to accept, as she did not wish to live away from home. She went on to become a teacher. Josephine is one of the three most borrowed authors based on UK Public Lending Rights figures.

Josephine Cox published her first novel, Her Father’s Sins, in 1988. Below is a list of Josephine Cox’s books in order of when they were first released:
