Joan's very first writing job sprung from an honourable mention received for entering a poetry contest when she was 13. This led to a weekly question and answer bird column for a weekly newspaper.

Deborah Lightfoot Hi, Joan! Thanks for your friend request.

Love your books! I just ordered the Stars, Zodiac, and Planets books in your Dot-to-Dot series. I love astronomy, and these books will be perfect for introducing my niece and nephews to this subject.

Write on! Deborah
