Hi, I’m Joy, an introvert and a writer who didn’t realise how much she enjoyed writing until she was in her 20s. I write Young Adult fantasy, which reflects my love of fairy tales and fantasy. I’ve independently published two novels, and I’m working on a series of fairy tale retellings.

The easiest way to find your way around is by clicking the ‘BLOG’ tab (in 'MENU') at the top of the page.

Current Project

The Sleeping Curse’ is a retelling of ‘Sleeping Beauty’. I was hoping to have this ready soon but, having bounced ideas back and forth with my editor, I’ve decided to rewrite huge chunks of it. I think it’s going to be better for it and I’m excited to work through the changes.

(Just so you know, that’s not the book cover.)

 

Deciding to Live a Joyous Life

I’m also a divorced woman who made the hard, painful decision to end my 26-year marriage to a husband who’d become an alcoholic. Slogging through two years of divorce proceedings, I found comfort in learning how to live, what I like to call, a JOYOUS LIFE, and part of that has been rediscovering my confidence and self-worth. I’ve decided to blog about my experience and if that helps just one person get through a similar situation, it’ll be worth it.
