About Joan

An explorer at heart, Joannie Duris enjoys discovering new places tucked away in the corners of New England. Her philosophy: Go slow, so you don’t miss the good stuff. She studied geology before moving on to a career in nursing. In the winter, she explores the outdoors while helping skiers and snowshoers as a member of the Northfield Mountain Nordic Ski Patrol. She has had stories and articles published in several national children’s magazines, and on BoomWriter, a writing website for kids. She leads a local Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators (SCBWI) critique group of fellow writers. A New England transplant, Joannie spent much of her childhood in Japan. She lives in central Massachusetts with her husband and three spoiled cats, where she can occasionally be seen chasing black bears away from her bird feeders..
