Joanna is the author of THE VALIANT book series.
Tell us about yourself and how you got into writing:
I’ve been writing since I was ten but after high school I wanted to turn it into a career, so I self published at first, until Hunter and Shifter both got accepted by traditional publishers.
Tell us about your stories:
I write Christian fantasy and I want to encourage and inspire other people and give them worlds and stories they can delve into with characters that they love that also show the truth without anything bad in it (clean novels).
What kind of success have you had?
One way I measure success is how many books I’ve written (54 novels); the Valiant Series is a 17 book epic high fantasy series and I see that as an achievement because I started it setting out to make an epic franchise and feel that’s what I did. Being traditionally published has always been a dream, so Hunter and Shifter being out in the past couple months (and July 1st for Shifter) is another success. But all success comes only from God.
How doe you get your ideas?
It’s a mixture of God’s direct inspiration, with my amazing husband and how creative he is. Usually my husband and I bounce ideas back and forth between each other until a great story plotline comes together.
Give us an insight into a time you wrote a scene with feeling.
Too many too count but everything in the last two books of the Valiant Series. Probably a major character’s death at the end that for me, parallels with the story of Jesus in the Bible had the greatest impact on me. God helped me write that scene and make it powerful.

Joanna White earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in Creative Writing for Entertainment at Full Sail University. The Valiant series is her first published work, which first started off being updated on a website called Wattpad. She lives in the countryside of Missouri with her husband, where she continues to work on her other upcoming books. Writing has been a passion since she was ten, when she wrote her first book. Ever since then, writing has become her life outside of her family, God, and being a nerd.
Beroan is a shapeshifter, part of the dragon clan. His clan’s Alpha, Sirath, wants to watch the world burn.
For ten long years Sirath has attacked villages, killing thousands of humans and burning towns to the ground. Beroan has had enough, but his resistance will only end in suffering.
Nsi is a human living in a small village with her grandmother and cousin. Her ignorance about the existence of shifters won’t protect her for long. Her family was killed in a dragon attack when she was younger, and now dragons have come again. Now she will stop at nothing until the dragon shifters are stopped, to save humans from suffering the same fate as her family.
Together, Nsi and Beroan will risk everything to save humanity from Sirath.
Darkness is spreading through the galaxy, Corrupting one world after another, and now it has come for theirs. Sirath already belongs to the Corruption of darkness.
He will not stop until he burns down the world and leaves it covered in fire and ash.
