JoAnn Smith Ainsworth

When JoAnn Smith Ainsworth carried wood as a pre-teen so her Great Aunt Martha could stoke up the iron stove to prepare dinner, she wasn’t thinking, “I could use this in a novel someday.” Yet, the skills she learned from her horse-and-buggy ancestors translate into backdrops for her historical romance and paranormal suspense novels. Her debut medieval romantic suspense novels MATILDA’S SONG and OUT OF THE DARK received 4 stars from RT Book Reviews. Other published works include POLITE ENEMIES (September 2013), THE FARMER AND THE WOOD NYMPH (December 2013), and EXPECT TROUBLE (2014).
