Joan R. Neubauer

A native of Bristol, Pennsylvania, Joan R. (nee Aquilone) Neubauer began writing as a child and at the age of nine, saw her first articles published in her local newspaper, The Bristol Courier. With that first success, the writing bug took hold and Joan has been writing ever since.

Joan attended St. Ann School, graduated from Bristol High School and then West Chester University in Pennsylvania with a B.S. in education. She taught Spanish and ESL for a number of years before deciding to tackle freelancing as a career.

In 1984 she began writing seriously for publication but had a lot to learn about the industry. In 1987 she began selling her work regularly. Eventually she expanded from freelancing into copywriting, ghostwriting, editing, and now into publishing.

Joan and her husband Steve own and operate, Inc., a publishing house in Alpine, Texas. “We’re an author incubator,” Joan says. “We want to nurture authors and help them develop into the fine writers and promoters they can become.”

Joan takes her own advice and is making a name for herself, her publishing house, and her authors. WordWright has acquired a reputation as one of the finest publishing houses to showcase new authors. Since 2000, WordWright has published over one hundred fifty titles for new authors.

Joan continues to write books, articles, and columns. She also travels extensively to promote her books and her publishing house. She is available to speak on a variety of subjects for writers groups, corporate functions, civic and service organizations, and schools.


  1. Hello Joan, I’m done writing my childhood autobiography and I’m now typing it. Mine is an extraordinary story. I ask God to let me see my book published and then see it in script. This true story must get published and reach all walks of life to serve as hope for the greater good. Joan, this is where you come in. When I’m done typing, I need an editor and mentor. My challenges are financial, however, I’m a great Certified Massage Therapist and maybe we can exchange services? Ha? What do you say? PLEASE RESPOND TO ME. YOU MUST READ MY MANUSCRIPT…You’ll be intrigued, so say the least.

    • MaAntonia, I sent you an email when you first wrote to me. I hope you received it but I haven’t heard from you. How is your manuscript coming along? I’d love to know.–Joan

  2. I have had a great experience working with you Joan in the process of your publishing my book “Shelter from the Storm” that you are releasing as we speak. You coached me and were a great editor so we produced a great book. The first book signings are scheduled and I’m awaiting the door bell ringing when the boxes of books arrive.

    You were also great working with five of us getting “Flash Tales: An Adventure in Words” published and released this week. It has been an exciting year!
