Author Joanne Sundell
Hello and welcome to my website! I’m still here writing historical fiction but am excited to add a new series with a young adult focus, and an element of fantasy. My upcoming trilogy begins with ARTIC STORM, set primarily in the Arctic West of Alaska, America’s last frontier. My previous works are set primarily in the Old West, arguably America’s first frontier.
Come along with me on a journey to new places and adventure!
With love and thanks, Joanne

On Arctic Will:
"Third in her Watch Eyes trilogy, Arctic Will concludes Sundell’s metaphysical saga of a sled dog family and their Siberian native owners in early 20th-century Alaska. A husky trainer herself, the author’s devoted connection to the magnificent breed permeates her work.
...Sundell’s passion for her subject carries the book. If you like Jack London, you will like Joanne Sundell."
On Arctic Storm:
"Sundell's novel evokes the atmosphere of the early 20th century frontier, reminiscent at times of Jack London's work. Blending historical and fantasy fiction is no easy feat, but Sundell captures her reader's interest with appropriate period details and a new take on common fantasy tropes. This is a refreshing story that neatly fits within the genre while also exploring new ground."
