Hello readers, today I will be discussing my 7 books and awarding two lucky people each a print copy of my poetry collection Poems About Life, Love, and Everything in Between, for commenting. Please stay tuned to the party and find out about my books and a little more about me. Below you will find my bio and photo, and a few questions and answers to allow you to know me a little more. Please have fun and I will return later today after work to post further. Thank you and have fun.
I have been a long-time resident of southeastern Ohio, and worked in the blue-collar industry most of my life. Besides having several novels under my belt, I canvas paint.
When not busy with hobbies or working outside the home, I spend time with relatives, my dog Jasmine, and volunteer my time within the community. I am a member of the International Women’s Writing Guild, Savvy Authors, Coffee Time Romance, Paranormal Romance Guild, True Romance Studios, National Writers Association, the Hocking Hill’s Arts and Craftsmen Association, The Hocking County Historical Society and Museum, and the Hocking Hills Regional Welcome Center. I believe in family values and following your dreams. My original canvas paintings, can be found at: booksandpaintingsbyjoanne.
