Joanne Williamson

Joanne S. Williamson was born on May 13th, 1926, in Arlington, Massachusetts. Though she had interests in both writing and music, and attended Barnard College and Diller Quaile School of Music, it was writing that became the primary focus for her career after college. She was a feature writer for Connecticut newspapers until 1965, when she moved to Kennebunkport, Maine and began to write historical fiction for young people.

Her eight titles are:
