Fast Facts
  • Having worked in journalism and advertising before turning to fiction, New York Times best-selling author JoAnn Ross has written over one hundred novels. So far.
  • Currently writing for Harper-Collins HQN, her books have been published in 28 languages; a few of those foreign covers can be found on her diversions page. One romance novel cover in the mid-80s, for some inexplicable reason known only to the Japanese publisher’s art director, featured nothing but trucks.  
  • JoAnn has had two novels excerpted in Cosmopolitan magazine, which, she occasionally reminds her husband, makes her an official Cosmo Girl.
  • Her first job, at age three, was skating in a roller skating follies in which her mother was a chorus line skater (sort of a Rockette on Wheels).
  • Born in Santa Monica, she grew up in Oregon’s ranching country, moved to the Arizona desert as a teenage bride (where she cried the entire first year because she was so homesick for the color green!) and is now blissfully settled back in her beloved emerald Pacific Northwest with her high school sweetheart husband, whom she married twice.
