Jo Rioux | The Legend of Lightning and Thunder

Jo Rioux was born and raised in Ottawa.  An artist from an early age, she was eventually drawn to children’s books, illustrating Swordquest for HarperCollins and the graphic novel series A Sam and Friends Mystery for Kids Can Press.  Her love for the comic medium spurred her to author her first graphic novel series, Cat’s Cradle.  She lives in the lush suburbs of her home town, where, when not working at her drawing desk, she can be found nestled within a pile of books.
