Joan Conning Afman taught art in the Hartford, CT school system for seventeen years before retiring to Florida. Always interested in writing, she found the opportunity and encouragement to do so with a group of new friends in the Sunshine State. She likes to add something in her books about art that might be new to the reader, and also introduce interesting locations. Sometimes another interest of hers, situations that include the paranormal, also find their way into her stories. Drivin’ Me Crazy incorporates all of these.
Joan has four grown children of whom she is inordinately proud, and six beautiful grandchildren. She keeps busy writing, painting and exhibiting her work, and thoroughly enjoys the social and cultural life of south Florida.
