For 28 years of the last millennium, Joan Upton Hall taught English, also editing and cartooning a teacher newsletter that won national awards.
Now a full-time freelance writer and editor, she instructs writing classes and speaks to any group that will listen to her. Her manual, Rx for Your Writing Ills, has helped hundreds of writers, and several writer newsletters carry her “Demystifying Writers’ Demons” column.
She contributes travel columns and an occasional humor column to the county newspaper and has published short stories and more articles than she can remember in magazines as diverse as Texas Highways, American Jails, The Elegant Texan, and ByLine writers’ magazine.
And if you think that indicates a split personality, her book credits run from historical nonfiction to the paranormal and urban fantasy. View the covers and read free samples on her website: www.joanuptonhall.com.
