About Jo-Ann Carson Where magic happens … Reports of Jo-Ann Carson’s death on a Gulf Island are greatly exaggerated or, at the very least, premature. The eclectic crew of ghosts that haunt her head spill onto the page in two series: The Gambling Ghosts and The Ghost & Abby Mysteries. A Viking with existential issues, a broken hearted Highlander, a Casanova man-witch and a Pirate with a secret are just a few of the males her strong heroines encounter in tales of fantasy, adventure and romance. A firm believer in the magic of our everyday lives, Jo-Ann loves watching sunrises, walking beaches near her home in the Pacific Northwest and reading by the fire.

  1. I love the Haiku and think doing poetry gives you a mental break from the work of a longer prose piece and freedom to explore a new direction.

    1. Thanks Pat,
      I think you’re absolutely right. I really enjoy writing them. They are a bit like a puzzle. I try to keep to the 5/7/5 classic form.
      Hope you’re enjoying the sunshine. It’s gorgeous here.
      all the best

  2. Beautiful haiku and a beautiful picture. I’ve never tried writing haiku but really enjoy reading it. I’ll be watching for your Monday gems. With the sun luring me out of doors to sand my garden gate, repot my patio planters and plant drought-hardy nasturtiums I’m not getting as much writing done as I planned. I may just have to take my tea and notepad outside.

    1. Hi Helena,
      I love the image of you in your beautiful garden with a cup of tea and your notepad. The weather has been so wonderful. Take care.
      Thanks for stopping by and sharing your kind words.
      Best Wishes
