Joanne began her career in the late 80s early 90s writing about homes and interiors for women’s magazines (a subject she previously had no ‘professional’ knowledge of). She credits her success at managing this to two things – a good nose for research and a love of stylish homes.
In between children she continued to write, including starting a blog and writing short stories. When she and her family moved to Singapore in 2014 she returned to freelancing setting up her own company, Pasquale Publishing.
Joanne’s most recent work includes contributing to a book about the shop houses of Singapore, travel features, guides to things to do in Singapore, features for expat websites, website content for local artists and editing a book for a French ‘nose’.
Throughout this time, she has continued to write fiction and has at least two stories ‘on the go’ at any time.
