Joanna might be a bit too cautious to do anything even remotely daring or dangerous herself, so she writes about daring adventures and dangerous magic instead. Yet, she found enough courage to abandon her life in Poland and move to Ireland, and then some years later, she abandoned her life in Ireland to move over to the US. She’s determined to settle there, once she finally chooses which state to reside in.
When she’s not writing or thinking about writing, she plays video games or makes amateur art. She lives the happy life of a recluse, surrounded by her husband, a stuffed red monkey, and a small collection of books she insisted on hauling across two continents.

I’ve nominated you for a Dragon’s Loyalty Award – couldn’t resist the DRAGON vibe… https://sjhigbee.wordpress.com/2015/07/27/dragons-loyalty-award/ not to mention the fire-breathing, sharp-clawed retribution that may ensue if you don’t go for it:).
Thank you for you message! I saw your tweet and was just writing my comment when you left yours here! 🙂
Oh, so we are some kind of Polish neighbours 😀 I’m originally from Włocławek 😀 And now I’m from ‘little Scotland’- small English town, Corby.
Poland is small compared to the whole world, isn’t it? I’m now in Flagstaff (1 hour drive from the Grand Canyon), but likely will be moving soon again. (The story of my life, I guess.)
Yes, it is 🙂
I hate moving – I’m like a hamster (like we say in Polish; is there equivalent in English?), I gater all kind of stuff. So packing for me is a nightmare. I still got 2 boxes unpacked from my last move one and a half years ago 😉
I guess English equivalent would be “a hoarder”.
And I’m like you, though I guess I’m slowly learning the other way round. I had to get rid of the 2/3 of my book collection when moving from Ireland to the USA. *wipes off tears*
Some of my books are still in Poland, and it’s been 5 years. But I’m learning to reed more ebooks.

Thank you for the mention :). I slipped a little bit (weekend + freelance work), but I’ll be catching up shortly. I really enjoy your theme.
