Joannah was born to a philosopher father and a fiction-addicted mother. She grew up in New York where the bookshelves of her childhood home were crammed full, library books were never returned on time, and the all the pages were dog eared.
Joannah now lives in northwest Washington State with her husband, two awesome teenagers, and a black dog that sheds relentlessly on her white furniture. When she's not writing she's usually driving a bunch of kids around town and drinking too many Americanos.
Joannah is currently writing Ten Kings , book two of the End Game series.

"Chanticleer's review of "APE: Author, Publisher, Entrepreneur" was a key component of its successful launch. I would recommend CBR to authors who are passionate about their craft."
"Your review is compelling. It got my attention and is a game-changer for "The Prodigal" by Michael Hurley.
"Thank you for your team's review of "Measure of Danger." I was really impressed by the detail and particularly on how many of the plot dots were connected. I appreciate the review, the additional postings of it everywhere. I look forward to continuing the relationship with CBR. Thank you!"
"Great job on the review! You nailed it. Again, thank you for going the extra mile. Chanticleer is a very valuable resource for writers, particularly Indie writers and I wish you guys continued success moving forward."
