About Joanna George

Before anything else, I have a strong passion to write. On creative days I crank out paragraphs and pages, hoping desperately to send my words out into the world. Through my words I want to show teenagers that they can be themselves, that they don’t need to ‘fit in’, and most importantly it is okay for them to love themselves. It can be a very difficult world out there and I want to somehow make it easier for teens or at least show them they are not doing the uphill battle by themselves. There are plenty of others with similar feelings and emotions. They are not alone.

I know writing is a business – a business that requires timeliness. I enjoy putting in the time because I treat my times for writing as a gift to myself. The pleasure I evoke from writing is shown in my ability to have numerous articles published in local Melbourne newspapers and a centre-spread in the Fellowship of Australian Writers magazine, my capacity to complete a Certificate in Professional Writing and Editing, my accomplishment at gaining a mentorship with the Australian Society of Authors, and my achievement at finally finishing my first novel, Forty Scrubs.

Loved the book! Only criticism I have is the ending...the father can easily be confirmed by a paternity test.

Keisha Morgan is your typical 16 year old girl except that she tends to have a few obsessive thoughts and behaviors. OK, maybe a lot of obsessive thoughts and behaviors, and those have left her isolated in a world where she has only one true friend, sisters who don't quite understand her, and no mother. But when a rash comment by her oldest sister hints at a past far different than the one she had known, her obsessive thoughts set her digging deeper and deeper into a series of shocking family secrets. Keisha's discovery rattles the foundation of her identity and drives her to uncover the truth—the truth about those she has loved and, ultimately, herself.

Forty Scrubs offers a fresh and engaging story that should appeal to young adults and adults alike. Keisha's unique circumstances combined with her quest for identity, desire to improve, and clever humor, compel the reader to join in her search to the end. This book is worth picking up and, at this cost, is a steal.
