ABOUT THE AUTHOR
An artist as well as an author, JoAnn believes that creating a story on paper is much like creating a story on canvas. The only difference is with one you use the keys of a computer. With the other you use the stroke of the brush. JoAnn and her husband, Brent, reside in St. George, Utah where she continues to divide her time between writing, painting, singing with the Southern Utah Heritage Choir, and searching out her ancestors. They are the parents of four sons and grandparents of fifteen grandchildren.
