About Joanne Jaytanie and Sharon Kleve

Bestselling authors Joanne Jaytanie and Sharon Kleve met at a Peninsula Chapter, Romance Writers of America meeting. They found they had a lot in common. They both write paranormal romance and both incorporate animals in their books.

Animals have very important and special roles in both of their writing, but for different reasons.

For Sharon, it's all about her love for animals. She's written about horses, flamingos, drug detection dogs, a nutty ferret, mourning doves and a sweet puppy named, Cookie. They all have something to say and she wants to write about it.

In the Corny Myers Series, her heroine, Corny can speak to animals. She has a ferret sidekick that keeps her on her toes.

In Josey's Christmas Cookie, a sweet puppy brings happiness back into her Josey's life for Christmas.

In Valentine Special Delivery, a pair of mourning Doves play match maker.

Sharon has a sweet cat named Ardy, who is the most important thing in her life, except her husband of course. Time is always set aside during the day to play, love and feed Ardy. What she gives back is unconditional love.

Chasing Victory
Joanne Jaytanie is more of a dog person. She purchased her first Doberman for her 21st birthday. Tashia was her soul mate and anywhere Joanne went, Taisha went too. Having Taisha in her life introduced Joanne to the world of obedience and therapy work, and the duo grew and learned by trial and error. After marrying and moving to Washington State and buying a home with acreage, Joanne decided that Taisha needed a canine companion, so along came Misty.

Misty became Joanne's AKC obedience dog and immersed herself into the world of AKC. Joanne became involved in her local All-breed Dog Club, where she has served on the board for nineteen years, nine of which as President. The Doberman Pinscher Club of America and three other Doberman Clubs, where she has also served on their boards.

As the years went on Dax and Kes became part of the family, and Joanne started showing in Conformation. Kes was the first Doberman that she finished an AKC Championship on and then bred, keeping both Captain and Anya. Anya produced an outstanding litter, of which Tristan and Maya became Joanne’s first two homebred champions.

Joanne was on the path of applying to become a AKC breed judge. While in the back of her mind the need to keep writing kept pulling at her. She has left the days of showing dogs behind, but not her love of the breed or sport. There is a thread that runs through her Winters Sisters Series, and that is to portray her love of the Doberman. She does this by showing the reader the dogs intelligence, commitment, dedication, tenacity and unconditional love.

About The Storm Bottle

Swimming with dolphins is said to be the number one thing to do before you die. For 12-year-old Michael, it very nearly is. A secret boat trip has gone tragically wrong, and now he lies unconscious in hospital.

But when Michael finally wakes up, he seems different. His step sister Bibi is soon convinced that he is not who he appears to be. Meanwhile, in the ocean beyond Bermuda’s reefs, a group of bottlenose dolphins are astonished to discover a stranger in their midst – a boy lost and desperate to return home.

Bermuda is a place of mysteries. Some believe its seas are enchanted, and the sun-drenched islands conceal a darker past, haunted with tales of lost ships. Now Bibi and Michael are finding themselves in the most extraordinary tale of all.
