Author Biography:

Joan Koster lives with her historian husband and a coon cat named Cleo in an 1860s farmhouse stacked to the ceiling with books. In a life full of misadventures, she has had sunstroke on the top of a Greek mountain while doing ethnographic research with shepherds, been stranded on the banks of the Rhine with no money and one chocolate bar, and while she has never been kidnapped, she has been abandoned on an uninhabited island in the middle of the wilderness for longer than she wants to remember. All of which makes curling up on a Nova Scotia beach and writing a true enjoyment.

A multi-published, award-winning author of fiction and nonfiction in the fields of art, education, anthropology, history and romance, she is the author, under the penname, Zara West, of the award-winning romantic thriller series The Skin Quartet. Her short stories have appeared in several anthologies, and have received awards from Women on Writing, Stone Thread Publishing, Tryst Literary Magazine, and Winning Writers. Her first historical fiction novel longlisted for the Mslexia Award.

Currently, she is in the process of writing a historical fiction series about nineteenth century women who never should have been forgotten, and a new writing craft series for fiction and non-fiction writers: Write for Success.
