My name is Joanne Kathleen Farrell. I am a historical fiction writer. I grew up in Albany, NY. My latest novel is Liberty for the LIon Shield. It is the story of the Irish migrating to America. I wrote this novel to honor the life of my grandfather, Dr. John A. Farrell who was a dedicated Saranac Lake tuberculosis doctor. For more information about me and the life of Dr. John A. Farrell check out facebook, google+, digg, stumbleupon, and myspace.
