Joanie has a strong passion for reading, and her love for books that “keep you up at night” inspires her to write contemporary suspense books. Thankful that God has given her the ability to write from her home in the country, she strives to use that opportunity to spread the gospel through her writing, and to honor Him in all of her accomplishments. Joanie and her husband, Ben, live in a country home near Madison, Georgia, right in the middle of a pasture full of dairy cows. There they raised and homeschooled their three children. She enjoys cooking, taking long walks, painting oil portraits, and caring for their home in the country.
