Hi, I'm JoAnn Sky. I've been writing for over 25 years as part of my corporate job (business and marketing plans and the like). One day, I tried writing for fun--and LOVED it.  Now I author contemporary romance and children's books--and I'm starting to try my hand at screen-writing. I'm also a trained copy editor. If you're in need of editing services, I'd love to help!  Click here for more info.


I'm originally from the Midwest and now live in northern Nevada with my own happily-ever-after--my husband, three teenage children, and three crazy rescue dogs. I have a soft spot for older rescue dogs. They are the most overlooked, underappreciated gifts of goodness in the world.  That's why I started Dogs & Books, a publishing company for my children's books. I believe books have the power to build connections... and animals do, too! It all began with the true story of our first rescue dog. He was a very special dog. In fact, I believe this dog was sent to us by Santa himself.  Read more about it here.

Dogs & Books is a publisher of high quality, dog-themed children's books. Our animal companions help us every day, and Dogs & Books helps them right back! Every purchase HELPS a shelter animal, because a portion of profits go to animal rescue causes.
