Joanna McKethan

Joanna McKethan was born in Dunn, North Carolina to parents of English and Scottish descent, and lives on original property from said ancestors just miles down the road from where the first Scottish settlers entered the area on the Cape Fear River in the 1700's.

A poet as well, she is published in literary magazines and anthologies and has won Writer's Digest's First Place in Unrhymed Poetry Award. She loves the South which forms part of her books, whether set in Estonia (Lady in White) or in North Carolina (A Holiday Folly). Her characters see high-snd-spy adventures in love and danger in castles and stately homes here and abroad.
