So sorry to read this.

Joanie helped a lot of Magicians (including me) to improve their acts with her assessments and suggestions both as a private consultant and in Magic Magazine.

I always enjoyed Joanie's presentations at Magic Live and I had the opportunity to meet her at the last Magic Live. It was obvious she wasn't well but I had hoped whatever her illness she would overcome it. I'm very sorry to here this news. She seemed to me to be a very warm, caring, person.

Here's a story about Joanie and the magician she worked with at the last Magic Live. If you were lucky enough to have seen this, you got to see something really wonderful.

Truly a devastating loss to the magic community, and those of us fortunate enough to call Joanie a friend. I pretty much owe my entire career in magic to Joanie. She made a short film about the work I was doing overseas with magic, and the rest was history. I was blessed to have her guidance and expertise in directing a large part of my current show. She was one of the kindest and most giving women I have ever met. Even though she wouldn't want it, I am deeply saddened by this. Smile
