JoAnne Soper-Cook

JoAnne Soper-Cook was born in Old Perlican, Newfoundland and grew up in Hant’s Harbour. She published her first story at the age of 8 when her mother, impressed with the quality of a short story she’d written for a school project, sent it in to a local newspaper. Since then she has written novels, novellas, short stories, plays, speeches, radio scripts and some really, really bad poetry. She holds a B.A. (Honors) and an M.A. in English Literature from Memorial University and a B.Ed, also from Memorial. When she isn’t writing she loves reading (pulp, mystery, and Southern Gothic are her favourite genres) walking, travel (the Deep South states of Mississippi and Louisiana rank high on her list of destinations) and listening to the voices in her head. She makes her home in St. John’s, Newfoundland, with her husband Paul and her spoiled rotten ‘dogter’ Lola. Sadly, Sheppie crossed the Rainbow Bridge on August 23, 2013, and is very much loved and very much missed.

  1. Finished Valley of the Dead. Do you think there may be a series here? Great characters.

    • Hi James – thanks! I’m glad you liked it. Yes, there will be other books in the Heartache Cafe series. I’m glad you asked. 🙂
