Joan is now a published member of the SWAT team ( A web site for thriller authors)


An international thriller writer has published my photo on her website.

I’m so proud.

This beautiful photo was submitted by SWAT Team member Joan Ramirez. This is a Vietnam Orchid taken when Joan taught in a school outside of Hanoi. In addition to being a published author, Joan is also a photojournalist and English as a Second Language teacher—all grades. She was privileged to teach students in this magical country. Thank you for sharing this very pretty flower, Joan!
