JoAnn Franklin always wanted to write novels, but making a living got in the way. She has worked as a teacher, principal, and is now an associate professor emeritus, with a research focus in decision making. She's also a wife, mother, and grandmother, but she never gave up on her dreams of writing fiction.
"Everyone I've met along the way to this writing moment has influenced me in some way, shape, or form, most of the time for the better. Because of that, I'm fascinated with how one person can make a difference."
JoAnn lives in an all-ages community along North Carolina's coast and when writing slows up her thoughts, a walk along the beach helps free creativity. Check out her Facebook page, @joannfranklinwriter.
