Joanna Campbell was born and raised in Norwalk, Connecticut. In her early twenties, she took open jumping lessons and competed in cross-country point-to-points. Campbell also became an accomplished classic pianist and vocalist and has performed professionally. Campbell wrote in the evenings after spending days working a full time job for a small corporate importing company. Her first book, Love Once In Passing, an adult time travel romance, was published by Avon Books in November 1981, after which Campbell was contracted to write several more time travel adult novels. She was still writing adult novels, but was persuaded to write several horse books for Bantam. Because of the success of the Bantam books, A Horse of Her Own, and The Wild Mustang, she was approached several years later to write a four book series about Thoroughbred racing, and thus began the Thoroughbred Series. She wrote the first 14 books in the series, as well as Shadowbrook Farm and Battlecry Forever!. In 1996, she chose to focus on writing adult novels and let other writers take over writing all future Thoroughbred books. There are now several authors involved in continuing the series, which numbers over 50 and still bears the name of it's creator.
