Joelle Charbonneau

Joelle Charbonneau

in Chicago, The United States
November 04, 1974




I am a storyteller at heart. I have performed in a variety of operas, musical theatre and children's theatre productions across the Chicagoland area.

While I'm happy to perform for an audience, I am equally delighted to teach private voice lessons and use my experience from the stage to create compelling characters on the page. I am the author of the Rebecca Robbins mystery series (Minotaur Books), The Paige Marshall Glee Club mysteries (Berkley) and The Testing YA triology (Houghton Mifflin Harcourt).

“Things don't always work out the way we hope. You just have to pick yourself up and find a new direction to go in.”
Joelle Charbonneau, The Testing

“Because sometimes the best leaders are the ones who have no interest in leading. Those are often the ones who are most interested in doing what is right, not what is popular.”
Joelle Charbonneau, Independent Study

“It takes a lot of courage to choose to do nothing when you aren’t certain of the outcome.”
