About Joanne Levy: 


Joanne Levy’s love of books began at a very early age. Being the youngest and the only female among four children, she was often left to her own devices and could frequently be found sitting in a quiet corner with her nose in a book.

After much teenage misadventure, Joanne eventually grew up (somewhat) and managed to find gainful employment at a large Canadian bank as an Executive Assistant to a Vice-President while writing fiction in her free time. Joanne’s middle grade novel, SMALL MEDIUM AT LARGE, about a tween who gets hit by lightning and can then hear ghosts was published by Bloomsbury in 2012. In 2013, Joanne left her day job and is now spending her non-writing time helping other authors with their administrative needs.
