JoAnna Santanen


JoAnna's interest in the creative arts started early in life. She spent much of her childhood reading novels that would whisk her away on magical adventures. By high school, her love of reading had sparked an interest in writing. Her projects evolved from poetry collections to fiction short stories and eventually, to novels. While earning her Bachelor's degree in Business Management, JoAnna wrote her first full-length novel, Restless Mind. The project became a passion that found her bonding with her laptop for days on end. She enjoyed the process so much that she wrote another novel, titled The View From the Fishbowl, not long after. JoAnna is now writing her third book, Under the Maple Tree, which she expects to finish soon. JoAnna delights in the enjoyment others can derive from her work, and would be happiest writing and sharing her stories with the world.

JoAnna grew up in the beautiful, Pacific Northwest. When JoAnna was a child, her family settled in Vancouver, Washington, just north of Portland, Oregon. JoAnna still lives in the area with her family and her two dogs. When she's not writing, JoAnna enjoys spending her time with her family and entertaining friends as well as drawing and painting.
