Welcome, Joan Maze
Running a day late, but wanted to sneak in and welcome today's guest, Joan Maze. If you're looking for mystery, then this the novelist for you. I've just met Joan, and I'm excited to read some of her work. We'll both learn a little more about her.
Today, I sneaked onto her website and found this:
I've always been involved in the arts, music, writing and painting, beginning with studying voice at Northwestern University. I interrupted this endeavor for a family, but finally finished my degree at Metropolitan State University in St. Paul, Minnesota. The emphasis, this time, was in subjects related to writing.
My first attempt at fiction was at the age of eight when my mother taught me how to use her turn-of-the-century typewriter. It was so heavy I couldn't lift it, but that didn't stop me from spending hours learning to type and, supposedly, write. As far as the story is concerned, it contained every mistake known to the publishing world, but it sparked my interest, which grew from that point on.
Help me welcome her today.
