Joni Scott Ryall lives on the Sunshine Coast in Queensland, Australia with her husband and small Lhasa dog, Mix. After graduation from Sydney University, she worked as an organic chemist and biochemist in hospitals and industry. Later she home-schooled her two children and embarked on another career running a tutoring business. Joni has found this new role of helping and motivating high school students most fulfilling. She believes it is never too late to learn or write a book. Whispers Through Time is her debut novel, inspired by her sister' s family research.
The Last Hotel is her second novel based on her real-life experience.
