A fledgling writer of short format fiction, Jo-Anne is particularly interested in telling stories of the hidden, the hurt, the silent and the unheard.

She lives in Vancouver, British Columbia where she happily shuffles from one coffee shop to another where she listens in on the conversations around her while drinking her espresso.

  • “Everybody loves the sound of a train in the distance. Everybody thinks it’s true.”

  1. I love that Paul Simon Song, Train in the Distance. Have you also heard the more acoustic demo version? As wonderful as the full band version on Hearts and Bones, the acoustic demo I think I like a little bit more. So good to know you a little, and thank you for your notice of my blog-type-thingy. 🙂
