J.M. (Joanne) is a newbie to self publishing. When she was a child, she loved to tell stories to keep her siblings entertained. Her brother said "she was our TV". As often happens, dreams get pushed aside in the day to day of real life. Now, in retirement she has pulled out all those scribbled short stories, poems and half finished novels. It's time to follow the dream, complete the wish list and share those imaginings with the world.
Joanne lives in Alberta, Canada and grew up in northern B.C. She currently spends her time writing, singing with her chorus of barbershoppers and spending time with her grandchildren.
What happens when the lights go out? Follow the Baldini family as they face a Canadian winter without the modern conveniences. Watch as they expand their family by banding together with a series of refugees. Day to day living becomes a struggle as the family learns about each other, and their own fortitude. The ending will surprise and delight.
