Why Do I Write, by Joanne Jaytanie

One of the most popular questions I get asked is why I write. I write because I love it! I have loved writing since my freshman year in high school. But instead of following my dream I went to college for business and got my BA. I spent years in business administration, personnel, and finance for a variety of companies, including our own business.

Ten years after starting our accident reconstruction firm, my husband decided he had enough of running his own company and longed to return to marine engineering. That was a difficult time for me. Along with dealing with the loss of our business, I found myself with no job and not sure what I wanted to do for the rest of my life. So I focused on my love of dogs. I went back to the obedience ring and then became infatuated with the breed ring. I bred and showed Dobermans for fifteen years, with the idea of applying for my Confirmation Judge license. All the while the need to write constantly pushed at me. One day, while filling out part of my judge application I realized that if I continued on that course I would be completely engulfed in that world and my writing would once again be pushed back to – some day.  I finally realized that if I didn’t focus on my dream today, it would slip away forever. I didn’t want to wake up one day and wonder why I never worked at the one thing I loved most to do.

I love writing. I do it when I’m sad, happy, busy, and lonely. Writing makes me happy. I submerge myself in the world of my characters. I live and breathe their lives and marvel at their decisions and predicaments. How lucky am I to know what it is I want to do ‘when I grow up’ and to absolutely love doing it.


Joanne was born and raised in Sherburne, New York, a quaint village surrounded by dairy farms and rolling hills. From the moment she could read she wanted to explore the world. During her college years she slowly crept across the country, stopping along the way in Oklahoma, California, and finally Washington State, which she now proudly calls home. She lives with her husband and Dobermans, in their home located on the Kitsap Peninsula with a panoramic view of the Olympic Mountains.

Joanne writes paranormal, romantic suspense. She loves writing about the twists and turns of her character’s lives and the trouble they find themselves involved in, coupled with building an everlasting relationship. She enjoys a wide variety of books including paranormal, suspense, thriller, and most of all romance.

Joanne is a member of Romance Writers of America, and an active member of Debbie Macomber’s home chapter, Peninsula Romance Writers, where she currently serves as the President.
