Joyce worked as a commercial artist-muralist until she discovered her passion for writing mystery novels.

Background Information

Joyce raised her children, grew her commercial art business and attended writing classes off and on for thirty years. She had a long career as an artist, and wondered what else life had to offer. The urge to write finally won the day.

In the last four years, Joyce has written four mystery novels. She conjures up mysteries for her protagonist, Josephine Stuart, and infuses life experiences into the stories and characters. 

Joyce lives with her husband and their golden lab in Aromas, California. She loves family, gardening, country life, and writing stories for her friends to read.


Joyce's murals have been published in Better Homes and Gardens magazines. She is a freelance journalist and her first novel was recently published.

Additional Information

Secure the Ranch is now available on Kindle. Josephine Stuart, a fifty-year-old widow, is blessed and cursed with an overactive curiosity, a strong sense of right and wrong and a willingness to put herself on the line for her friends. Josephine has been hired to paint murals in the secluded Munger mansion, located at the top of a wooded mountain. Certain local reprobates have their reasons for wanting the Mungers to leave. Accidents, fires and the death of a forest ranger have everyone on edge. Josephine's curiosity drives her down the mountain, into the world of illegal activities and nefarious characters. Her situation becomes dire - no way to escape. One captor has a knife, the other has a rifle. Can she save herself and her friends?
