Joan Green wrote a poem called “Our Talking Cat” for my anthology, Written Across the Genres. Her poem is comprised of 16 haiku that tell the story of how their cat learned to say her husband’s name. Joan earned a BA from UC Berkeley and holds an elementary teaching credential. She loves to volunteer, travel, hike, read, write, and listen to classical music.
Here is an interview with Joan Green:
Julaina: Who is your favorite author and genre?
Joan: It’s difficult for me to single out a favorite author, but I do enjoy reading good mysteries and historical literature.
Julaina: Why do you write?
Joan: Writing is in part an emotional release for me.
Julaina: Where do you like to write?
Joan: I usually write while holed up in my den. However, my haiku poems often come to me in the wee hours of the morning when I’m half asleep.
Julaina: What are you working on now?
Joan: Although I’ve been preoccupied with poetry more recently, I still want to complete the family history memoir I started some time ago.
Julaina: I remember the wonderful letters from your father when he was in the war that will be included in that memoir. Good luck with finishing the project. Thanks for stopping by for my questions.
