Guest Book


Joan, as well as many children, has always wanted to know how Santa is able to deliver all the presents in one night and how does he deliver the presents to children without chimneys.

This publication is her newest venture. Two additional books featuring the Magic Sceptre: are on the drawing board.

Joan resides in Rhode Island with her three blonde cats, Kitch, Bailey and Shell-B.

Being a product designer, each product matches a character in her book.  Each character comes to life in a soft plush toy and polyresin  figurine or hanging ornament designed to be seen in 3D.  All detail, dimensions and colors were created with time, thought and experience, lastly the book with the colorful illustrations  brought the whole “story” together.

Joan can be found behind the scenes at her desk and computer most of the time, seen here she is illustrating her first children’s book in watercolor and magic markers.
