About the Author
Born and raised in the Kansas City area, JoAnna remembers her suburban neighborhood as possessing all the virtues of a previous generation: good schools, good manners, large well-tended grassy lawns, and beloved family pets like her cat Poozy. Of course, there was that time one of the neighbors killed Poozy with a baseball bat. Of such incidents are horror writers made. With a day job full of facts and figures, JoAnna took refuge in murder mysteries and horror novels at the end of the day. Her first fiction release, Betrothal, Betrayal, and Blood (2011, Night to Dawn Magazine & Books LLC), reflected bits and pieces of people and places that crossed her path. Her newest book, Reservation Ravaged (July 1, Night to Dawn LLC) continues JoAnna's tradition of dark, mysterious tales. JoAnna has a bachelor's degree in French and economics from Stephens College in Columbia, Mo., and a master's degree in economics from UC Berkeley. She completed a paralegal certificate from UC Santa Barbara in 2010. JoAnna has taught classes in macroeconomics, information and cost analysis in human resources, management theory and benefits administration. JoAnna has been a human resources consultant for more than 20 years and wrote the nonfiction HR book "Designing a Not-for-Profit Compensation System" (2005, John Wiley & Sons Inc.). She works as a paralegal in Surprise, Ariz.
