(If you are reading this be warned: This bio is written completely in third person to make me sound super intelligent 🤓)

Joanne is a lover of books and the written word. It had been a life long dream of Joanne’s to write and publish a novel. A dream that she finally fulfilled in early 2014 after writing YA Paranormal Romance Illuminated Darkness for close to three years. In 2015, her NA Romance ‘Freefall’ was signed by Evernight Publishing.

Joanne grew up in sunny Queensland in Australia and currently resides on the Sunshine Coast with her family. She has always had a passion for writing and is a former radio announcer and journalist. Currently she works in her other passion – teaching children the vital life saving skill of learn to swim. In her spare time she likes to drink coffee with her friends and train and compete in triathlons (very badly).

Joanne is currently writing a sequel to Freefall, and a YA Contemporary novel that may or may not take another three years to write. She has two anthologies planned for release in 2016, and also has plans to write a sequel to Illuminated Darkness, that will be titled Darkness Enveloped.

  1. Hi Joe! I have been meaning to contact you since we left the Sunshine Coast to go on with our travels (I am not on FB). I wanted to let you know I finished your book “Illuminated Darkness” the day after we last spoke and I absolutely loved it. I did not see that ending coming! Very well written, you had my attention the whole time! You will have to let me know when part 2 is out. Thanks again for being so welcoming and helpful 🙂 You were my inspiration to finally start writing my children’s book. Good luck with all your writing ventures and well done following your dreams. Thanks again. Melissa


    1. Thanks Melissa! Hope your travels are going well and the girls are keeping up their swimming skills. I’m so please to hear you’re writing your book! Let me know when you’re done. I’d love to buy it! Jo
