Joan Johnston | SETTING GOALS FOR THE NEW YEAR

Joan Johnston is the top-ten New York Times and USA TODAY bestselling author of 54 historical and contemporary novels and novellas with more than 15 million copies of her books in print in 19 languages in 25 countries. Joan has won numerous writing awards including Colorado Romance Writers Writer of the Year, best novel (twice) from the Georgia Romance Writers and a RITA nomination for best short contemporary novel.

Joan has written for Simon & Schuster, HarperCollins, Harlequin and her current publisher Random House, and worked with agents Irene Goodman, Richard Curtis, Denise Marcil, Al Zuckerman and Robert Gottlieb.

Joan quit her job as an Associate Professor at the University of Miami to write full-time. In order to make ends meet, she wrote five books a year for the next five years. Her hard work eventually culminated in a multi-million dollar deal to write for Simon & Schuster.

Joan has a B.A. in Theater Arts from Jacksonville University, Jacksonville, Florida, an M.A. in Theatre from the University of Illinois in Urbana, and a J.D. from the University of Texas at Austin School of Law. She worked as a director of theatre, drama critic, newspaper editor, college professor, and attorney on her way to becoming a full-time writer—and also raised two fairly normal children.

In order to research her novels, Joan spent six weeks at a cattle station in Australia, traveled to Tahiti, Moorea & Bora Bora, spent three weeks in Viet Nam, two summers in London, and the fall in Rome, took a course in tracking (humans and animals) from a Deputy Sheriff in the Big Bend, and had lunch with a lot of Texas Rangers and FBI guys.

Joan has had season tickets for the Denver Broncos the past two years, even while she lived in Florida — and made 7 out of 10 games last year. She now lives near Boulder, CO where she plays a lot of tennis and hikes when the weather's good.
