Joan Rasmussen is a writer living in Northern California. As the middle of three children of Danish-American parents, she has learned to roll with the punches and not take herself too seriously, a quality that comes through in her work. She loves to write to both inform and entertain.  Her work has been featured in local magazines.

Joan’s passions include horses and country living. She shares her mini-ranch in California’s Gold Country with her two horses, Cowboy and Dublin, and her cats, Maxie, Cookie and O’Malley.
