SEARCHING FOR LOVE (book of short stories)
Joan McGlone's interest in writing began to blossom when she took a creative writing course from Berea College literature professor Mary Jo Thomas. She commented in a Berea Arts Council presentation, "I had thought I wanted to write children's books, but it just didn't work for me."  She went on to write a collection of short stories (Searching for Love) that was published by First Books. McGlone added, "It was fun. I feel like I accomplished something."
