Born in New York City, Joan L.
Cannon welcomed retirement when she found time to indulge in a lifelong ambition--to write fiction. She and her husband lived
for over forty years in a tiny village in western Connecticut, where they raised their three children, with a collection of
pets including dogs, cats, and horses.
Once a high school teacher of English and drama,
Mrs. Cannon also managed a museum store, edited a museum newsletter, and began to publish short fiction. She now resides in
a retirement community near the Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina with her husband. They look forward to visits
from children and grandchildren and to occasional trips back north.
