Author Joan HawkinsJoan Hawkins was born in Cambridge, Massachusetts. She attended Bennington College and New York University.

She now lives in New York City where she practices psychotherapy.

Her first novel, Underwater, was a cutting edge cult novel that explored female sexual boundaries.  It was published by G. P. Putnam in 1974 under the name of Joan Winthrop.

A daring novel that was ahead of its time, the book received limited distribution as a result of a restriction by family members on its marketing and publicity. However, with two independently published novels under her belt in the meantime, Bailey and Trespass, Joan has decided to mark the novel’s 40th Anniversary with a brand new Second Edition from Landon Books.  The title will also soon be available in Kindle and e-book formats – see here for more details, or go directly to Amazon.
