She insists that there really are 10,000 lakes and the mosquito is NOT the state bird.

While pursuing her writing career, Joanne has worked as: a public school teacher, a psychologist, a musician, a private detective's assistant, a corporate, legal, and pharmaceutical secretary, a short order cook, a florist's assistant, a caterer and party planner, a computer consultant on a now-defunct operating system, a production assistant on a TV quiz show, half of a screenwriting team with her husband, and a mo

Pamela I am loving your Hannah Swenson Series so far!

message 4: by Lacey

Lacey Loving all of your Hannah Swenson books and even my two year old daughter loves listening to them while we are driving around. I borrow them from the library on the CDs. I just hope that they have them all since we still have a few more to go. Thanks for writing such great books!

Arlene Just finished Winter Chill. What a great book. My comment on reading the ending? Wow, sure didn't see that coming!!!

Loved it.

Arlene I read Dead Giveaway recently. I loved it. It is in a higher class of suspense than the Hannah Swenson series. I am now going to read the others you have written in this class!

I have read all the Hannah Swenson series, and can't wait for the latest one to be released.
