JoEllen Conger is not a single writer, but twins who have written together since childhood. Joan lives in Santa Cruz, California with her youngest daughter Makai, born in Hawaii while the family voyaged on a forty-foot Trimaran, which was built in the backyard. Joan’s three cats work overtime to assist in typing on her computer. Joyce lives alone with her pets in Bakersfield, California. They also feel it their sworn duty to aid creating new manuscripts by walking across the keyboard.
