Joann’s love of fantasy and science fiction inspired her to create the Brookehaven Vampires and their world. She lives in
Northern California with her very supportive husband and their two wonderful children, along with what she likes to call her furry entourage–two rescued tuxedo cats and a very devoted Aussie. Between being a stay-at-home, homeschooling mom and a
wife, she spends her spare time, what little there is of it, hard at work on the next Brookehaven installment.
