About the author

JoAnn Chateau

JoAnn Chateau likes progressive politics and loves the canines. In fact, she writes fiction about Chester (the Alpha Bichon) and his friends--always with a dash of humor and a dab of poli-sci. Although JoAnn's views are augmented by her former professional life in Psychology and Information Science, don't take everything she says toooo seriously -- what you think and do is much more important! Retired now, JoAnn enjoys the creative life.
