Joan Sloane was born during a blizzard in Montreal, Canada and has been whirling ever since. She grew up on Long Island, New York with eight brothers and sisters and an assortment of dogs, cats, birds and turtles.
A day dreamer by nature, Joan grew up drawing pictures and making up stories. She went to college for art, but her real passion turned out to be creative writing and theater. Joan once played a gorilla at a theme park, as well as the magician’s assistant. Her love of animals shines through in her characters who are almost always animals. She has two granddaughters who love to sing and dance, and one grand dog who loves to sleep.
Joan lives in Florida, mostly in front of her computer or at Barnes and Noble.
