Joanna writes books that feature spunky female characters. Her work has been praised by Library Journal as "topically relevant and chock-full of side stories." Publisher's Weekly calls her cozies, "a cut above the usual craft-themed cozy."
RT Book Review describes one of Joanna's typical heroines as "our best friend, our next-door neighbor and ourselves with just a touch of the outrageous."
In her ongoing quest never to see snow again, Joanna lives with her husband and their Havanese puppy, Jax, on an island off the coast of Florida.
