For over twenty years Jo Ann served as a seminary teacher and a gospel doctrine teacher while also teaching Classic Mythology and Bible Literature in her Honors English courses. Both of these teaching experiences, one focusing on religion and the other on literary archetypes, have given her great insights into the hearts and lives of the people who inhabit the scriptures. She has come to know and love the women of the Bible.

Jo Ann has been married to her husband, financial economist Mark Skousen, for over 40 years. They have lived in Washington DC, the Bahamas, London, Florida, New York and California. In addition to collaborating on 25 books, two investment newsletters, and a large conference business, they are the parents of five children who genuinely like each other. Jo Ann is never happier than when reading aloud to her grandchildren or teaching them to catch a wave at the beach.
