Happy #NationalGretchenDay! Don't forget to put on your tiara today. Share your inner princess with the world!
When fate stepped in and waved its magic wand, my destiny, or what I thought was my destiny had been altered. With a new found energy, I decided things needed to change.
This is my time. My turn to take life by the balls. No one will hold me back, yet one man will give me hope.
This is my fairy tale, and I’ll write my own ending. I’m Gretchen Prescott, and this is my story.
From the first day I met her, I knew she was special. She was taken; we were friends. When the dumbass didn’t realize what he had, he lost her. I suppose one man’s loss could be this man’s gain.
All I wanted was to hold her, be with her and make her mine. She deserves the best things in life, and I plan on giving them to her.
I’m Mason McDermott, and this is our story.

Grab your tiara and hold on tight because Charmed will take you on quite the ride. I've been waiting for Gretchen's story since the moment I met her in the first book featuring the Prescott's. Hats off to Joanne Schwehm for writing something completely different. I found myself furiously reading because I just had to see how everything was going to pan out...
Gretchen was everything I wanted her to be and more. She was strong yet sensitive, smart and sassy. A true class act. I think my favorite thing was how Gretchen kept her brothers in line without coming across as needy. But the one thing she did need, was to feel wanted, cherished, loved- because she gave those in her life the same respect. Enter Mason and insert swoon here. This man is a sexy as he was sweet. I was most drawn to his kindness- he was just an all around good guy. And his heart beat for the one thing he knew he shouldn't want....
I loved the lightness and ease of Mason and Gretchen's friendship and watching it progress into something more just made my insides mush. The chemistry between these two was off the charts. But there was a lot at risk, friendships and family were all twisted up and the emotions ran high for both of them. BUT that twist!! Oh boy. I didn't see that big shocker coming in any way, shape or form. My heart was in my throat and I read furiously to find out exactly what would happen. Sigh. When all was said and done I wanted so much more Mason and Gretchen and their unique journey. I hope I'll get to see them again in the next book in this series.
Family and friends are the most important things to Joanne. She enjoys meeting new people, traveling, reading, relaxing on a beach and shopping. She has an addiction to Coffee and Diet Coke; you may want to stand clear if she hasn't had her daily intake!
Writing has been something that has been private and not shared until the day she decided to publish Unexpected Chance. Waking up one morning to the voices of Alex Logan and Aubrey Ryan changed everything!!
She is an avid sports fan especially when it comes to the New York Yankees & Dallas Cowboys. She also enjoys playing and watching golf.
She firmly believes when that unexpected chance comes, take it. Don't let it pass you by. You never know what you could be missing.
