Also follow me on:

Joan Danford is a freelance writer and high school English and writing teacher who is currently not teaching full-time. She has a passion for words and for the ways that words can be used to achieve powerful ends. She has written through various platforms, some ghostwriting and some with bylines, mostly SEO as web content.

While teaching reluctant teenagers how to harness the power of the written word, she also coached the high school's girls’ tennis team, having played the sport herself for over thirty years. Joan currently lives in Lithia, FL, which she believes is an old native American word meaning "out in the sticks" but which is actually considered a suburb southeast of Tampa on the west coast of Florida. When not busy writing, Joan is also a licensed bartender and often works with a party service company in various areas of central Florida.
