Women’s Fiction/Children’s Adventure/Cozy mystery Author
Joan’s earliest memories of writing go back to the fourth grade. An avid reader of the Happy Hollister’s Mysterys series, she penned her first two short stories, “The Mystery of the Missing Bread” and “The Snake That Had Legs.” Not best-sellers by any means, but her teacher and classmates loved them, sparking her interest in writing. In sixth grade, her mother gifted her with a 5-year diary, which sparked a passion for journaling and writing, which continues to this day.
