Joanna MarpleIn her 20's. Joanna took her guitar and rucksack and wandered the continents, getting involved with some wonderful people, projects and stories. Right now she is a European transplant in the US who writes young adult novels and picture books that offer readers mirrors and windows; lives to 'live' and worlds to explore. Joanna believes equity and empathy should be at he core of our actions and words. She is also a school librarian and gets a kick out of book-matchmaking.
