I'm JoAnna. I love to write. I wrote my first story when I was three. It was about a 20 year old talking gray cat. Writing has always been a hobby, never a career. But I enjoy it more this way. I'm working on my second manuscript. My first one was about a suicidal girl in the mental hospital who endures psychosis, tries to drown herself in sinks, and can't tell which crazy people are real. My second involves drugs and prostitution so I probably won't be posting any of it here. I haven't written a short story in a while but maybe being here will encourage me to. I divide my time between working as a Massage Therapist, reading and writing, and hitting up seedy bars with friends. I am a published author. I wrote a short story and it was published by a college magazine. It was very prestigious and I take it as evidence of my innate genius. (haha.) Hi.
