Joan was born and raised in Philadelphia but still will, on occasion, lose her way. At a young age, she received classical instruction in oil painting before discovering that stories were her favorite kind of art. She studied psychology and Chinese history at the University of Pennsylvania and currently writes from a desk overlooking the city
waterfront. Descendant of the Crane is her young adult debut.

“The problem with oceans? They always seem smaller from the shore.”
Joan He, The Ones We're Meant to Find

“Even in a sea, every life rippled far beyond its end.”
Joan He, The Ones We're Meant to Find

“Everyone lived at the expense of someone else.”
Joan He, The Ones We're Meant to Find

“When I dream of her, it’s in vibrant color, unlike the gradients of gray of my monochrome days. But everything is hazy when I wake. The details merge. The colors fade.”
Joan He, The Ones We're Meant to Find

“Others might believe there’s power in a single step,” murmured Actinium, the cadence of his breath brushing Kasey’s ear. Her eyes widened. His warmth was real. So was the brace of his arm. The press of his chest. “But most choices are made before you reach the edge.”

ahhh sara! thank you so much for this kind message, I'm so so glad you enjoyed towmtf!!


sara ❀ hiii joan, just wanted to drop by and say that i finished 'the ones we're meant to find' a couple days ago and i haven't been the same since. i'm honest-to-goodness still in that aftershock phase, and i just. cannot emphasize enough how fully ~stunned~ i am by your words and this story and the way it seems to have fit all my jagged edges — just thought you should know that i'm in love and that i'll support you to till the ends of the world (and beyond) 😤💕💕
