Joan Bard-Collins was born in Chicago and grew up in Northwest Indiana where the local library became her second home. Stories have always been a major part of her life - first listening, then reading, and now writing. From an early age she discovered that American History was one epic adventure after another.

Bard-Collins and her husband are partners in an architecture/engineering company in Oak Park, Illinois. They both share a passion for Chicago’s architectural history. Over the years they have collected remnants from numerous, now demolished, Chicago buildings.


Honor Above All is the first novel
in a series, set in 1882 Chicago.
Recently published by Allium Press.
