Being a Baby Boomer has shaped my life. I want my characters to reflect that rich heritage.

Background Information

As Baby Boomer women, we have profoundly and irrevocably changed our world. Now we face new challenges - our parents' and our own. How we ultimately meet these new challenges remains to be seen. But one thing is certain. The rules have changed. What worked for our parents will not work for us. We will not go gently into that good night. All 76 million of us will go kicking and screaming and changing everything as we do. Literature - what's written, how it is delivered - will be changed along with everything else. I want to be a part of that change.

Additional Information

Joy has published several medical and health-related articles, even having her own monthly health column at one point. She eventually branched out into print magazines. She was recently named Health Editor for Women Etcetera!, an online women's magazine. But making up stories has always been her first love. She wanted to write fiction. “I started playing a game of ‘what-if’ one day with an idea that had been rolling around my mind and the seeds for Second Chance started to sprout.” Joy drew on her own emotional experience as a second wife and stepmother while giving Sara, the protagonist, her voice. “Writing novels is what I want to do and I’m already one third of the way through my next book.” Joy shares her Arizona home with her husband of twenty-six years and their fur-kids. “My ideal life would be sitting at my computer, drinking coffee and weaving tales.” Read more at Purchase an autographed copy of her book at
