About Joanne Fink
Joanne Fink knows first-hand the pain of loss. In 2011 her life forever changed when her husband of 29 years died unexpectedly of a heart attack, just two days before their son’s 12th birthday. Joanne began journaling as a way of getting through her loss, and eventually published her illustrated memoir, When You Lose Someone You Love, as a gift of comfort for those who are grieving the loss of a loved one. She is devoted to changing the culture of grief support, and offers free resources for those who are grieving, and those who are supporting someone on their grief journey, on http://www.WhenYouLoseSomeone.com. In addition to writing and speaking, Joanne creates commemorative art and is currently developing products to help others navigate the grief process.
In 2009, Joanne founded Zenspirations®, a company dedicated to inspiring people to use their creative talents to make a difference in the world. A best selling author with over one million books in print, Joanne’s next book , My Spiritual Journey, is a guided journal for spiritual seekers that will be released in December.
