With a love for hearing people's life stories, Joanna writes historical Christian fiction based on true stories.

She currently works for a nonfiction publishing house in Chicago while at home with her new baby Elena. She previously wrote for newspapers and a pharmaceutical company after earning a journalism degree. Her unlikely Prince Charming, hubby Vince, serves as brainstormer, model for fictional heroes, and the most honest critiquer.

Gail Pallotta, Host

Gail’s husband, Rick, says she’s the only person he knows who can go in the grocery for a loaf of bread and come out with someone’s life story. That’s probably because she inherited her mother’s love of people and enjoys talking to them. Working as an editor and freelance writer, Gail published a couple hundred articles. While some of them are in anthologies, two ended up in museums. In 2004, the American Christian Writers Association named Gail a regional writer of the year. She recently published her first romance, Love Turns the Tide. When she isn’t writing she likes reading, swimming, and getting together with friends and family. Gail wants to write books of faith that show God’s love. She and Rick live in Georgia.
Gail is the author of Love Turns the Tide.
