About Joan

For as long as I can remember, I’ve always wanted to be a writer. My mother said I had my head in the clouds as a child, always daydreaming.

I often felt it was audacious to even consider joining the ranks of my heroes – the authors – so I never put my ideas or dreams into words, never made notes or wrote anything down. I worked at several jobs, nothing remotely close to a career, though – some sales clerking, but primarily factory work, because that paid better.
When I reached my 40th birthday, I experienced a definite turning point in my life. I decided that at my ‘advanced’ age I could handle the rejection if nobody wanted to buy my stories and I had nothing to lose by trying. So I quit my job, sat down at my kitchen table with pencils and a spiral notebook and finally let my imagination take wing.

I achieved my impossible dream three years, and many rejections later. My first ten books were written longhand at my kitchen table. I wasn't a typist, so I paid one to transcribe my handwritten manuscripts before biting the bullet and going to the typewriter myself to hunt and pick my way through future stories.
Some years later, I sold a formally rejected, completed manuscript to Silhouette Books… and found a home. Many of my books are set in my beloved Pennsylvania, by an ocean, any ocean, but usually along the South Jersey coast or the West, with mythic Western heroes.

Now, a few years, ahem… past forty... and sixty some books later, I’m still writing two to three books a year, although I like to try and tell everyone I’m semi-retired!
I’ve been married forever to my husband, Marv. We have two beautiful daughters, Lori and Amy, and two grandchildren, Erica and Cammeron.
