Author JOANNA FITZPATRICK was raised in Hollywood. Her novels include the The Drummer’s Widow, Katherine Mansfield, which won Bronze in the 2021 Independent Publisher Book Award (IPPY) in Historical Fiction, and the recently released The Artist Colony, which Kirkus Reviews called “an escape to gorgeous Carmel and an engaging mystery.” Fitzpatrick’s great aunt was involved with the famous colony by the sea.
