Joanne is a fun and entertaining presenter who uses humour and examples from her own life to illustrate the sometimes rocky road to following your dreams. Joanne’s presentations can be tailored to her audience, but she specializes in talking about her long, bumpy road to publication and what it takes to make a book, from birth of concept to editing and production and how a final cover is made. Presentations always include ample time for Q&A.
Joanne is happy to speak to fourth grade and up and prefers to be in a library or classroom, but is flexible and can present anywhere.
