"A sprightly plotted thriller and dynamic characters should leave readers eager for the sequel." - KIRKUS REVIEW

SALVAGING TRUTH receives an outstanding review from KIRKUS REVIEW – Click here to read

Joanne was born and raised in Sherburne, New York, a quaint village surrounded by dairy farms and rolling hills. From the moment she could read she wanted to explore the world. During her college years she slowly crept across the country, stopping along the way in Oklahoma, California, and finally Washington State, which she now proudly calls home. She lives with her husband and Dobermans, in their home located on the Olympic Peninsula with a panoramic view of the Olympic Mountains.

Joanne writes romantic suspense, romantic thriller, paranormal, supernatural suspense, and contemporary romance. She loves to submerge herself in the world of her characters, to live and breathe their lives, and marvel at their decisions and predicaments. She enjoys a wide variety of books including paranormal, suspense, thriller, mystery, and of course romance.

Joanne is a PAN member of Romance Writers of America (RWA), Kiss of Death (KOD), Greater Seattle Romance Writers Chapter (GSRWA), Sisters in Crime (SIC), and Fantasy, Futuristic & Paranormal (FFPRWA). She served as President of Peninsula Romance Writers, which was Debbie Macomber’s home chapter.
