It must pay to be part Irish.   To date, Joanne's writing has been blessed Australian and USA multi-media coverage -- five newspaper articles, one live radio interview & mentioned on CBS Evening News USA... all resulted from her quirky Media Release. 

How Joanne sees the world. "I see Humanity as a magnificent clipper ship named Unity in Diversity.  It proudly has as its unfurled flags red, black, brown and white.  In its hull are the world’s medical, educational, ecological, economical and world peace projects. The multi-national crew cannot work on such essential social issues if Humanity is buffeted by social Tsunamis – racial, religious, age, gender and socio-economic prejudices.  The tides must calm.  The waves must roll in synchrony. 
That synchrony is created by unconditional love, loyalty, respect and sharing.  That synchrony is begun when we mesh instead of clash.  My tales take the reader down a path where cultures mesh instead of down, that old and much too trodden track of cultures clashing.  Reading.  What a fantastic form of recreation.  What a fantastic way to be re-created or re-mused.   A tantalizing tale can make our minds, hearts and souls do somersaults.  A tale can take our established views through twists and turns that validate, cancel, challenge or extend our views.  No wonder storytelling goes back to the beginning of time.

Joanne Galliher has written short stories, novellas, novels, prose and essays.  She has also created a DVD to help bilingual-speakers speak clearer English!
