connecting with women, men and children around the world. I
am continually reminded of our similarities rather than our
differences. My husband Phil and I divide our time between
the shores of Lake Superior and San Francisco, CA. As we
travel to points beyond and between, we remain grateful for
those people we meet along the way. I've been writing for
over thirty years. My poems have been published and used
internationally since 2005. They were first published
internationally by the Women's United Nations Report
Network. As a result of the WUNRN the poems reached numerous
NGO's (non-governmental organizations) around the world.
My poems have been translated from English
into French, Spanish, Japanese, Mandarin and
Joana is available for presentations to groups, events
and special occasions. She also consults with individuals
concerning the life experiences her pieces touch upon.
