Joan Smith

Joan Smith is a graduate of Queen's University in Kingston, Ontario, and the Ontario College of Education. She has taught French and English in high school and English in college. When she began writing, her interest in Jane Austen and Lord Byron led to her first choice of genre, the Regency, which she especially liked for its wit and humor.

She is the author of over a hundred books, including Regencies, many with a background of mystery, for Fawcett and Walker, contemporary mysteries for Berkley, historical mysteries for Fawcett and St. Martin's, romances for Silhouette, along with a few historicals and gothics. She has had books in the Doubleday Book Club and the Literary Guild, been on Walden's Bestseller list, had two Regencies selected for the Romantic Times ten best ever Regencies, and had one book condensed in a magazine.

Her favorite travel destination is England, where she researches her books. Her hobbies are gardening, painting, sculpture, reading and healthy cooking. Now a widow, she enjoys spending time with her growing family of grandkids and great grandkids. A prolific writer, she is currently working on Regencies and various mysteries at her home in Georgetown, Ontario.


Joan Smith's Regency and Georgian romances are at Regency Reads.
