Joanna McKethan was born in Dunn, North Carolina to parents of English and Scottish descent, and lives on original property from said ancestors just miles down the road from where the first Scottish settlers entered the area on the Cape Fear River in the 1700's. A fine artist, professional in watercolor and oils, she has taught art from her private studio j'Originals for 32 years to thousands of students. She exhibits and wins prizes nationally. A poet as well, she is published in literary magazines and anthologies and has won Writer's Digest's First Place in Unrhymed Poetry Award. She loves the South which forms part of her books, whether set in Estonia (Lady in White) or in North Carolina (A Holiday Folly). Her characters see high-snd-spy adventures in love and danger in castles and stately homes here and abroad.
