JoAnne Pope

JoAnne Pope grew up in a small Arizona town where LGBTQ+ was an acronym that happened in other places. Today she lives out of the closet in Tucson and works in adult education by day. By night she writes queer young adult novels and teaches query letter workshops for SCBWI. JoAnne loves Doctor Who, Chucks, trolling her adult child, and chugging iced espresso. She’s represented by Melissa Edwards at Stonesong Literary.
